15: Arica Carlson [Creative Convo]: Processing Grief Through Prose
**PRODUCER’S NOTE: October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. It’s devastating how many families are affected by miscarriage, stillbirth, death from premature birth/delivery complications, or SIDS. These types of loss happen more often than we realize, and yet it’s something people rarely speak about openly. We are doing our fellow women (and their families) a disservice by not acknowledging their pain and asking them to share their stories. It is our prayer that this episode will broach this sensitive topic with love, empathy, and resources to help those experiencing this type of heartbreak.**
A planner by nature, Arica Carlson thought she had a good grasp on what to expect in motherhood. Little did she know, her youngest son would arrive in a way that would change her life forever.
Join us for Creative Mama [Episode 15] and hear of one mother’s story of unexpected life changes, the questioning and heartache that ensued, and how she fought through anger and grief by reaching out for support and journeying deep into her own soul.
