This study aimed to understand, through the bias of everyday life, the phenomenon of maternal mourning. It is a qualitative pilot study on three bereaved mothers. Semi-structured interviews were used for data collection and content analysis was performed using typical categories of
daily life. It was possible to observe significant changes in the mothers’ daily lives after their children’s deaths; however, they created strategies that minimized such impacts. Losing a child leads to reconstructing one’s own history and identity. It is believed that daily
life is an important bias, and thus its study could help us understand this phenomenon.
