Life, Love and Loss

  • A podcast for families caring for a child who is dying

    This podcast series focuses on the experience of parents of children who have died or are likely to have a short life. Despite advances in health care, children and young people still sadly die from a range of life limiting conditions. The parents in this series have been supported by palliative care teams to face multiple challenges in caring for their children. These parents bravely share the love and beauty of their children and the joy and sadness of their individual experiences. They hope their voices can support, inform, and better prepare other families who may need to face similar challenges.
