Dive into heartfelt stories of loss, resilience, and healing. Tune into our podcast and find solace in shared experiences.


The Still Nest Podcast

Hosted by Dr Fatima El-Assaad, a medical researcher and a bereaved parent, this podcast explores infertility, pregnancy loss, baby loss and birth trauma in culturally, linguistically and faith diverse communities.


This season offers a powerful taste of the experiences of Australian culturally diverse bereaved mothers who identify with the Islamic faith and insights from professionals working with them.
