Show Notes

Frankie's first baby, Esme, was stillborn in September 2013. Having to break the news to youngsters within the family was made harder by the lack of a children's book that she felt could adequately explain what had happened. She also wanted more guidance as to how she could retain Esme's place in the family in positive and special ways.

She was inspired to write These Precious Little People, and the safe arrival of Esme's two siblings only cemented her desire to provide a resource to families that would do credit to how precious these little people really are. She connected with @gilliangambleartist, an experienced, incredibly talented & generous illustrator, and had the backing of @joeltcp (a wonderful charity that receives all proceeds from sales of the book); both supported Frankie’s dream & helped bring These Precious Little People to life.

This episode is sponsored by Carat London. They’re an absolute trailblazer in jewellery. In fact, they’ve created an environmentally- conscious community that includes some big names like Lady Gaga and Ellie Goulding.

The key is lab-grown diamonds. Yes, lab-grown. Growing them in a lab means no mining, no unjust labour, and no guilt. We believe this sustainable way of producing diamonds could be the future of the jewellery industry – because these diamonds don’t cost the earth – both literally and figuratively.  Competitively priced compared to a mined stone, their new Gentle Diamond range, aims to be completely carbon neutral.

It's time to break the silence and open up the dialogue around the topics of miscarriage and pregnancy loss. No more shame, no more taboo, lets ditch it for our children; the ones that will come, the ones that are and the ones that never came to be.
