Jenni Thomas Talks About Child Bereavement

The death of a child


Jenni talks about the grief experienced when a child dies. From the different ways that partners can grieve to how trauma can affect grief, Jenni draws on her lifetime of experience to share what parents have said was important to them following the death of a child at any age. Jenni describes how there is no right or wrong way to grieve. She explains that there are very different and varied ways in which people may behave after the death of a child, in particular that anxiety is often misunderstood and not recognised as a normal part of grieving.
