Recently, there have been concerns in regards to 'not' having a Board specific for Mother/Father loss.

We would like to know how you feel about this as Webhealing is where you come to share your grief, find and offer comfort and most importantly, feel safe so it's important to us to know that our members are receiving the proper support.

From time to time, there are questions, concerns or suggestions regarding the Boards and we are always open to hearing how you feel. This thread can be a place to post any concerns/suggestions that are directly related to the message boards.

Please feel free to let us know how you feel!!

Thank You,
With Love and Care,
Webhealing Staff

As a new member, I think it'd be wonderful and very helpful to have a Parental Loss board, as well as a spousal loss board.

Instead of "spousal loss", I'd suggest calling it "partner loss" to cover husband/wife, common-law husband/wife or same sex partners.

The death of my Mother brought me to Webhealing in 2008.  I visit often mostly reading.  I believe that a board specific to the loss of a Mother/Father would be nice.  However I must also say that I have always found suppport in the main forum.  Webhealing is a wonderful and safe place for those of us experiencing grief!

Thanks to everyone who responded! We appreciate it!

We have quite a few members with multiple losses and I feel these new boards will help a great deal in honoring all of our loved ones.

Reading where someone has lost their Spouse/Partner and then returning to the board after losing a Parent is heartbreaking and the need for support will be more visible, whereas posting a new topic on the same thread is not only confusing, their need for support for their new loss could be overlooked. And, we would never want to see that happen.

Feel free to post on the appropriate boards when you are comfortable doing so! You can also reintroduce yourself as new members can read and benefit from your story.

My love to you all,
Terry
