Malin Andersson – Navigating Pre-Natal Depression
As we’re approaching baby loss awareness week, I write this blog with a heavy but also light heart. I’m currently pregnant with my second child, but as many of you may know, I’m still grieving the loss of my first child, Consy.

My dad passed away when I was 11 months old, so I never had a complete family unit growing up. My mum was my rock, and the role she played in my life was so important. She’s made me who I am today. My strength comes from her, and I know being pregnant without my mum here is the most scariest thing.
