On today's episode, we'll be discussing a heavy topic (when do we not?), the loss of a child. The loss of a child is generally considered the worst possible grief and a topic that is often ignored because of the immense pain involved. We are grateful to have our friend and colleague, Kim Borchert on the show today to share with us her some of her story and help us bring more awareness on navigating grief as a parent. We know the grieving process is a very individual and personal experience, but we hope Kim can help us understand more about the grieving parent. Please listen with an open heart, but also take the space you may need.
 
Kim is the wife to a pretty amazing Man and Mom of 6, 5 on Earth and 1 Beyond. She has been an unapologetic normalizer of death since her daughter died in 2003. She is a childbirth educator and birth and postpartum doula that specializes in helping families navigate grief, loss, and welcoming their rainbow babies.
She owns Austin Doula Care with her Doula Soul Mate and is so grateful for the opportunity to serve Austin families and collaborate with other doulas in Austin.
She is a lover of plants, herbs, and making food and medicines from her garden. When she is not doing doula work or playing in the dirt, you can find Kim swimming with her kiddos, reading a book, or watching Outlander.
