On January 26th 2007, my beautiful son, Christian was stillborn. My life was irrevocably changed that day. Ever since then I have searched for ways to honour his life, mostly through my art on a beautiful beach in Muallaloo in Perth, Western Australia. I work on different grief projects throughout the year that I share with everyone through my website at Project Heal. I speak at grief and healing workshops, ceremonies and events and I also write for Still Standing Magazine. My wish for everyone who has experienced the death of their baby or child is that you can come to the realization that this grief journey is your own and that you have the power to make of it whatever you choose. May you all learn to love wholeheartedly not just for yourselves but to honour your beloved children.
❥ About me
In September 2011 I held my younger twin daughter Amya in my arms as she passed away. I have been amazed by the beauty and sacredness of the moment of passage between birth and death, having just given birth 3 days prior. At the same time I experienced the loss of a mother, yearning to hold both of her girls in her arms and not just in her heart.
Having worked with clients as a Grief Recovery Expert and Relationship Coach for the past 10 years I went on my personal journey through the land of motherhood and grief, added by my mother’s suicide 4.5 months after my daughter’s passing.
My wish for everyone is to gain insight and awareness beyond the pain of grief and to walk the path of healing.
I have published the book Grieving Parents: Surviving Loss as a Couple both in English and German version. – click here to find out more.
