I just finished your 'Grace in Action' podcast, I binged listened to them, actually. My favourite researcher Brené Brown talks about living a brave life and it means a huge amount of fear and pain quite often as you can't pretend things don't matter. But it's a bit like fairy lights, where everything is dark and hard for a bit as you walk along the string and then suddenly you find the light again.
Listening to your podcast with Siobhan felt like one of the floodlit moments. So much clarity and beauty in the way you both love Grace. It was a masterclass in love.
Good to remember this as I go back into midwifery. I'm not sure how to say it but I think of Grace and you and Siobhan often as I'm sure many of us do. Do you remember that chat we had about BLM and you talked about turning situations that you can't control and break your heart into some kind of art?
I really hope it was helpful to you both but you know it was helpful to me, and that has to mean lots of others, right?
You gave plenty of evidence and useful information which is brilliant but we need the art so much. To help the women and the families and the midwives find their way through.
Anyway, I'll post the podcast on my blog and hope people find it.
Much Love x
