You’re heartbroken, angry, and scared.
You can’t bear another negative pregnancy test, another month this dream won’t become a reality. You’ve seen so many doctors, undergone expensive treatments, and taken medications that made you feel nauseated and sad. You’re trying to stay positive, but some days that feels impossible.
Maybe you’ve suffered the gut-wrenching pain of pregnancy loss. You’re so incredibly sad and scared to try again, but you also desperately want another baby. You’re angry at your body. Everything you read says it’s not your fault, yet you can’t shake the guilt.
Maybe you’ve lost a precious child, and the hole in your heart and darkness that hovers threaten to consume you. You know life will never be the same, and you’re not sure how to get through the days ahead when a part of you is forever gone.
Maybe you’re pregnant again after loss. You’re grateful for this new pregnancy, but you’re having a really hard time holding onto any hope; your mind is consumed with what-if’s.
You feel so alone.
One of the most difficult things about infertility or loss is that it’s isolating. Well-meaning friends and family members sometimes say things that make you sad or angry — or worse, they don’t know what to say, so they don’t say anything at all.
Maybe the way you’re grieving is different from how your partner is grieving, and that’s causing strife in the only relationship where you can actually open up about all of this.
It’s so hard, and it’s incredibly lonely.
You don’t have to keep suffering in silence; I can help.
I create a safe space where you can tell your story — even the most painful, awful, scary parts. We’ll work together to understand and explore your grief, manage your worries, and find a path forward. I have specialized training in perinatal loss, and I offer Brainspotting, which is a focused trauma treatment that can be particularly helpful in reprocessing the trauma inherent in both infertility and perinatal loss.
