005 | Dr. Veronica Eyo, Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Covid-19 brought forth many challenges.
With those challenges comes obstacles we never thought we would face alone. Infant loss doesn’t take a back seat to troubling times. For mothers who have experienced this during the pandemic, the feelings and emotions have never been more substantial and more isolating.
Between postpartum depression, anxiety, PTSD, and a looming sense of isolation, this episode talks about the power of being acknowledged and seen in your experience.
Trust that you’re not alone.
Dr. Veronica Eyo, LCSW, talks about how to navigate these chapters of your life. Every person grieves differently, and Dr. Veronica’s knowledge of finding support and healing on your terms can help break down the walls of singularity that infant loss can build around us.
Acknowledgment and support are something mothers don’t always receive. Understanding the impact that this could carry for mothers is something Dr. Veronica understands, and her strategies to help those heal from it are the first step toward acceptance.
