Bereavement and loss
The Pregnancy Counselling Service provides general bereavement counselling, as well as counselling related to pregnancy loss or the death of a child. There are many reasons why you may decide on termination of pregnancy. For some women this can leave feelings of guilt and loss.
Infertility can bring feelings of loss for the baby that is longed for, and the treatment itself can be very stressful.
Sometimes friends and family do not understand that a miscarriage can be as devastating as losing a baby later in pregnancy. An early loss is not necessarily a lesser loss.
The loss of a stillborn baby or a child can be devastating for the whole family.
What ever the cause of your loss being able to talk through your feelings with midwife counsellor who has a lot of experience in guiding parents through this very difficult time can be invaluable.
