Being a parent when you’ve lost your own parent is a special grief journey. Rashida Dinehart of The Grieving Mamas Podcast tells Margaret how her own stages of grief have progressed, and how she says moms on this journey can protect themselves.
Rashida Dinehart is the co-host of the Grieving Mamas Club podcast, which provides community for anyone on the wild ride of motherhood while also navigating their grief journey. She's also the creator of Mona and Me, a blog exploring the high highs and low lows of Rashida's life as a motherless mom.
In this episode, Margaret and Rashida discuss the loss of their mothers, why grief is not a linear process, and how they continue to navigate their own grief journeys.
