Counseling at Pregnancy Loss and Prenatal mental health
Pregnancy Loss and Prenatal mental health is one area of supportive care that I am passionate about and have a wealth of experience in.
Miscarriage and stillbirth as two of the most common types of prenatal loss are losses that in the past and still somewhat today often go unacknowledged and minimized by society.
In fact, the social pressures can be an additional burden. Feeling alone in your grief and isolated with the thoughts and emotions prenatal loss can bring can be so difficult.
Nowadays there is no need to suffer alone. We know that acknowledging the effect of pregnancy and infant loss on us as women and men can be very important to us in our healing journey. The loss of a child and the potential for its life, for the hopes and dreams we have for them can be one of the greatest losses there is. Allowing for the sadness, acknowledging and processing the grief felt after the loss, and moving forward worth hope is the aim of my therapy with women and men experiencing pregnancy loss or indeed the loss of the hoped-for birth experience.
Fertility counseling benefits couples to overcome their emotional blocks so that they can conceive.
