Losing a child, whether early in pregnancy or after birth, is a life-changing event. And the pain can be unbearable.
Perinatal loss—miscarriage, stillbirth or infant death—affects more than one million families every year. Nearly one in five pregnancies ends in a miscarriage before 20 weeks of pregnancy.
It can be difficult to recover emotionally, mentally and physically. Parents grieve the loss of their hopes and dreams, and the vision of their future with a child. There is no comfort for the loss of what they never knew.
Friends and family you would normally turn to for support may not have even known you were pregnant, leaving you and your partner to deal with the loss—and the emotions—in isolation.
You don’t have to be alone on your journey. Our clinical psychologists can help you through this incredibly difficult time. We offer individual counseling as well as a Compassionate Caring: Miscarriage and Infant Loss Support Group that meets on the first Wednesday of each month, from 5-6 PM at our West End Office.
Let us help you find your way through your grief. 804.288.4084.
