Grief, Loss & Traumatic Birth Support

While many births result in healthy, happy mothers and babies, some sadly do not. The challenges that come a long with a traumatic birth or even a loss can be monumental and deserves to be recongnized, honored and processed. A Birth Therapist can help a family effectively process and grieve the loss of a pregnancy or infant, understand a birth didn't go as planned and support a family through what can be a difficult time. Not only will this help a family heal but help them to prepare for the potential of future pregnancies.
