miscarriage and still-birth support

Have you lost a baby and need support? Grieving is hard work, it takes time and drains energy, it takes far longer than friends and family may recognize. Be aware that your reactions are normal, and expect many ups and downs.

 

In response to the needs of the women who have contacted me, I have developed a service which many women have found to be beneficial, both following their loss and also moving on to a further pregnancy. This service includes advice on counseling, relaxation, stress/anxiety management, pre-pregnancy care and support throughout a future pregnancy.

   

The experience of miscarriage and still birth is a highly emotional experience for a woman.

It is unique to each person and for many it is a time of great sadness and overwhelming feelings of loss and grief.

 

I have just lost my baby.

Why did this happen to me?

Did I do something wrong?

Will this happen again? 
How do I move on?

 

  Experiences include -

 

   Grief
   Anger

   Heartbreak

   Sorrow

   Guilt

   Depression

   Despair & despondency

   Sleep problems

   Fear

   Anxiety

   Concerns about being able to conceive further children

   Concerns about being able to carry further children to full term

 

As well as being a shocking and painful physical experience it can be a more subtle hormonal one. Women can find themselves feeling deeply unsettled, disappointed and empty for a long time.

 

Treatment with  complementary therapies can provide a safe supportive environment where difficulties can be sensitively explored. With caring support and the assistance of natural balancing treatments every person has within themselves the resources for self understanding and a way to a point of acceptance.

 

The support service is available by appointment to individual male or female clients and couples.

 Please feel free to contact me personally with any questions or concerns.
