Grief & Loss

Though loss can be common it doesn’t make it any easier to cope with. Miscarriage or infant loss can be devasting and many women report feelings of isolation and guilt. Everyone’s journey through grief is unique. Seeking support from a therapist can help you process your experience and begin to heal from your loss.

Research shows 1 in 8 pregnancies will end in miscarriage.  
Many women find themselves alone in their grief if they had not shared the pregnancy with their friends or family. Those who have discussed their pregnancy may find their loved ones don't know what to say or how to offer support.

Oftentimes each member of the relationship handles the loss differently. This can lead to further distress and a breakdown in communication between the partners. 

Grieving a miscarriage, stillborn or infant is different from grieving the loss of an adult. This unique type of loss encompasses the loss of future hopes, dreams and expectations. Many women who decide to become pregnant again worry they will experience another loss.

In the past, the common belief about grief was that individuals moved through five stages in a linear fashion. Now we understand this idea is often not the case and women may find they move between the stages or are triggered by certain events which send them back into a previous stage. 

Our therapists can provide a safe, supportive space for you to process your loss and find meaning in your experience. Learning healthy ways to cope can help you heal and move forward while still remembering & honoring your child.
