The founder of a Newark Baby Loss Charity and a former mental health nurse have teamed up to launch a podcast on wellbeing.

Help Us Grieve (HUG) creator Amy Everatt and her friend Juliette Quincey – a former mental health nurse and now a clinical hypnotherapist – have teamed up to start Notts Care to Share.

Each episode will focus on the mental health and struggles people faced during the pandemic, highlighting the services and support networks available.

HUG was founded by Amy in 2017 after losing two babies within 12 months. She found it difficult to talk about her loss after realizing that little emotional support was available.

Since 2017, Amy and her husband Oliver have focused on building a strong support network that provides relevant experience and advice to those who find their way through the grief over the loss of a baby.

Amy is the mother of two healthy girls and said: “Especially since the pandemic, it has been important that people are informed about the support networks available.

“We will be posting a lot of useful information on our podcast and on our Notts Care To Share Facebook page, and encouraging people to get in touch with any questions or stories they want to share.”

The first episode has gone online and discusses the lives of a single mother and a frontline NHS worker.

Juliette said, “Amy and I decided to start this podcast to provide a platform for people to share their stories safely and without judgment.

“We want the Notts Care To Share podcast to be a platform where open and honest discussions about positive mental health and wellbeing can take place.”

In the coming weeks, several guests will join the couple to discuss various topical issues and offer their expert help and advice.

Future episodes will address topics such as the problems of dating in a lockdown, our relationship with dining with TV chef Kwoklyn Wan, the pressures teachers feel during the pandemic, and how the coronavirus affects the everyday lives of an individual father and son, Autism .
