There are many facets to counselling in the area of pregnancy and parenting and here we cover:
The loss of a baby
Nothing can prepare you for the loss of your baby. This can be an impossibly difficult time for you as a parent, often beyond words.
I have experience of listening to bereaved parents, being able to show deep empathy and understanding.
Whether your loss has been post-birth, or through a late pregnancy delivery, I can provide support.
The grief process experience after baby loss is intense, often generating a real, physical pain. I understand those feelings and am here for you to express how you are feeling. In addition to extreme sadness, many feel anger at their loss, and this is perfectly normal.
Harmony offers a place where you can come and be yourself, without judgement, and with full acceptance. Counselling for baby loss is not a quick process and it is usually a long road to recovery. Many clients find life is never the same again, but in time, they discover a way to live through such an experience, feeling ultimately stronger.
Why not contact me to see if I can help?
Defined as the loss of a pregnancy, up to twenty-four weeks. Miscarriage can often feel like an unrecognised loss. This is because you have experienced a genuine loss on the inside, yet it is not possible for others to see anything on the outside.
Miscarriage can come as a terrible shock with unbearable emotional and physical symptoms. There is a difference between an early miscarriage (experienced within the first twelve weeks), and a late miscarriage (between weeks twelve and twenty-four). However, at whatever stage you lose your baby, there is still a grieving process that needs to be experienced. This often involves the natural stages of grief such a shock, numbness, denial and anger.
At Harmony’s private counselling room you can talk through some of the above feelings. Sometimes it can help to give names to your babies, even though they have not been born. However, some women just simply want to move on from their experience. The choice is entirely yours and I can accompany you every step of the way.
Sometimes it can help to write a letter to your baby or to create a memory box/tribute. These are all activities that can take place within the counselling room should you wish.
