Holidays are Complicated

And grief is exhausting

You may feel like you're in a fog, dreading work or social events, not being able to focus, not wanting to do much at all.

As the holiday pressure starts to ramp up, you may be wondering how you're going to get through the next few weeks. Gatherings can be so hard, with people asking awkward questions or even worse, not saying anything at all about what's really going on for you.

It can be overwhelming, and hard to find any peace.

This annual Mothering Your Heart workshop supports you to find room to breathe and time each week to reconnect with your heart.

If you're struggling after miscarriage, infertility related losses or the loss of your baby or child, you'll find support here.

The Holiday Workshop has closed for the year but you're invited to join the  new Self Care Support Workshop or  Monthly Online Support Program




"It's hard. Our families think that we should be doing better by now, but it's still so hard. It helped to have this space, to be around others who understood why we aren't ready to 'move on'. Thank you for putting it together."

Holiday Workshop Feedback
December 2017


Everything is online, there's no cost, and you can go through at your own pace.

As soon as you sign up you'll receive your welcome message and your invitation to the private Mothering Your Heart FB group if you'd like to connect with others (this is optional, we get that social media can be hard at this time of year).

Once a week through the end of December you'll receive a new care package by email, with tips on coping with the holidays, prompts for reflection, and conversation in the community group if you choose to join in - it's totally up to you.

Through the material, you're invited to weave a layer of support through your next few weeks, with encouragement to pause and check in with yourself as often as you can.

Grief + the holidays can be so hard. Please be gentle with your heart however you go through the next while.

Take breaks, plan ahead when you can, make time to do nothing at all.

Above all, even though the pain can be so isolating, know that you're not alone.

Hi, I'm Shannon

I'm glad to meet you although I always say I wish we were meeting under different circumstances. I'll be facilitating the workshop and am available to answer any questions you have.

If you're new to Mothering Your Heart, welcome. This space is truly a labour of love and I invite to you explore the website to learn more. 

I've been running these Holiday Workshops for the past three years and am always so grateful for this kind of online space where people can gather and help each other through. I look forward to spending time with you and everyone joining in on this year's workshop.

Thank you for being here, for yourself and your heart. If you have any questions please email me at [email protected]
