As part of my Taking Control series I have interviewed the amazing Zoe Clarke-Coates MBE, co-founder the Mariposa Trust, a leading support charity primarily working within the field of baby loss and bereavement.
Zoe talks about her heartbreaking journey to have her family, how she set up the charity and the support it now offers millions of families every year.
Zoe offers advice on coping after the loss of your baby, at any age or gestation, and how those around you can support you through baby loss.
She also talks about pregnancy after loss, how to cope through the anxieties and fears it can bring.
The taking control series has been developed to give you lots of ways you can start to feel more in control, whatever your journey looks like, and to highlight the different support available to you.

A failed IVF cycle is devastating. You pin all your hopes on it working, so when it doesn’t you don’t know what to do next. We look for explanations as to why it failed to help us process it and cope.
I interviewed the very lovely Emma Kemsley on her experience of endometriosis. We talk about her experience of living with endometriosis, getting a diagnosis, and how she now copes with her symptoms.
