Grieving on Mother's Day | Cruse Bereavement Care

Call our free helpline
0808 808 1677

Mother's Day can be an incredibly challenging day for anyone whose mum or chid has died. It can evoke powerful memories and feelings which are very personal.

We know this is a difficult day for many and have provided some thoughts and ideas which may help you to plan your day.

Our Freephone National Helpline will be open from 09:00 to 17:00 on Sunday 31st March 2019 if you would like to talk to one of our trained bereavement supporters. The number is 0808 808 1677.

We're holding a special Mother's Day Facebook live event on Thursday 28 March. This is an opportunity to ask one of our trained and experienced bereavement supporters a question about bereavement and grief and discuss what coping strategies might work for you on Mother's Day.

We are releasing a series of podcasts this year to mark our 60th anniversary. For our first episode we’re joined by freelance writer Florence Wilkinson. In our conversation, Florence talks about her relationship with her mum, what it is like to have a bereavement at a young age and how she feels about Mother’s Day.
