Missing Mother

Jacqueline Shepherd lost her mum at the age of ten. She explores what happens to little girls who lose their mums early, and how it affects the women they become.

The Mother-Daughter relationship is a special one - but what happens to little girls who lose their mums early? Missing Mother is an intimate window into the life of women who have experienced arguably the most significant loss - the loss of a mother.

Jacqueline Shepherd, broadcaster and presenter, who lost her mum at the age of 10 explores whether there is an unspoken or unrealised academic, relational and mental connection between their loss as a girl and the women they later go on to become.
