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.

Mother’s day (along with every other special date) is often a really tough day when you are still desperately trying to have your longed for baby. This blog features some tips to help you get through Mother’s Day.
If a friend/family member confides in you that she is struggling to conceive and undergoing fertility treatment, the most important thing you can do for her is to be there for her, allow her to talk when she wants to and be sensitive to how she is feeling.
