Beyond the Loss Podcast

Episode #1 – Still here with Alishia Anderson

Join host Aditi Loveridge as she talks with Alishia Anderson about her own personal story of loss, the stages of grief she experienced after her loss, how she handled her grief on the toughest of days, and how she was able to move on past her grief.

Get to Know Alishia Anderson… 

Alishia Anderson has always looked at life with a glass-half-full perspective. But, when she lost her first-born son DJ at 28-weeks’ gestation (1.18.16) it rocked her to her core. Through her grief journey, she has grown spiritually, discovered her purpose, and has become a better wife, [rainbow/golden] mama, pregnancy loss advocate, and mentor to other baby loss families who’ve unfortunately been dealt the same tragic plight of loss. Alishia learned early after her loss that sharing her story helped her heal. Two years into her healing journey she self-published her book, Still Here: A Memoir of Love, Loss, and Triumph After Stillbirth, to help eradicate what she coins the 3S’s of baby loss: silence, secrecy, and shame. Alishia enjoys writing, singing, traveling, making memories, and spending quality time with her family and friends. She resides in Southern California with her husband Derrek and two earthside sons.
