I am so sorry for your loss. I have no personal experience however I have had friends who have found the winstons wish website very useful. Hopefully you will find someone with more personal knowledge to help.

How old is your daughter? The general advice about bereavement is that it is best left if possible, we all need to process things in our own way and it is only if we start to struggle with that after some time or it leads to real problems with behaviour that you would intervene. So talking about it and normalising that it is tough may help.
Having said that if you do need support there are some really good charities like winstons wish who have website and phone line and offer plenty of advice
