In this episode we chat to the lovely Elle about her son, Teddy, who died a few days after he was born. We talk grief, love, loss, and amazingly, manage to have a few laughs along the way. Elle discusses her book, Ask Me His Name, and her blog, Feathering the Empty Nest. She tells us why she is sharing Teddy's story and what she wants other grieving parents to know. Ellie talks about her own memories of having a baby in intensive care, while Helen shares her equally important experience of being temporarily vegan. We round off with a Scummy Mummy Confession starring a very special guest. Ask Me His Name is out now in hardback, and the paperback edition will launch on 7 March. You can follow Elle on Instagram @feathering_the_empty_nest and read her blog at featheringtheemptynest.co.uk. The Scummy Mummies book is OUT NOW! We hope you like it, and if you do, we'd love an Amazon review! **SEE US LIVE** Come to our live comedy show! We are on our way to Cirencester, Sheffield, Barnsley, Kettering, Hackney, Chipping Norton, and more...
