Loss Research Project: Would you be willing to share your thoughts on your journey post child-loss and how marketing has helped or hurt you along the way?
The project involves interviewing loss moms to see how marketing has hurt or helped them after loss (e.g., think of those formula samples that just keep coming and retrigger feelings of no longer having a child). The study goal is to find out if there are things that loss moms want from companies or anything that can be done to ease the pain and better honor one's child.

If you are interested, details on the study can be found at https://elizabethminton.weebly.com/loss.html.
