Jenni Thomas Talks About Child Bereavement

Life after Eddie – the sudden infant death of a baby


Jenni is joined by Jen Reid, Eddie’s mother, who describes the moment she found her baby son had died from sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), formerly known as cot death. Jen talks about the joy of the first three months of Eddie’s life, her first baby, and the loneliness and despair she and her husband Chris experienced following his death. They sought couples counselling to understand each others’ grief and to support them in their anxiety about getting pregnant and having another baby. Together Jen and Chris have founded the charity Teddy’s Wish.
