While often a taboo topic, losses in pregnancy happen more than we know. Acknowledging and addressing loss increases our compassion for those who are going through it. Many women have miscarriages that go unnoticed, with lingering fear and grief with subsequent pregnancies. Some women experience traumatic losses through fetal diagnosis and still birth. These are moments of extreme emotions and often are treated with standard procedures, with the mothers emotions left in the back burner.
As a Doula trained in serving bereaved mothers and families, We strive to promote healing and peace by:
Offering our presence & support at the time of the loss Unlimited Labor Support 24/7 Contact via phone/email Access to books & resources Memorial keepsakes Offering special ways to include the child who passed, with the birth of a subsequent child Offering support for siblings to understand and remember the baby Breastmilk pumping and donating/weaning guidance and emotional support Postpartum Support Blessingway/Farewell Ceremony planning/guidance if desired
Ultimately, our goal is to allow the mother and family to grieve and heal, with the guidance of one who cares deeply.
Our God is healer of the broken hearted. We have sorrow now in this world, but hold fast, for Our God has overcome the world. He hears our prayers, he heals our wounds. Now we mourn, soon we will rejoice.
You are not alone in this time. Your baby is special, and you are forever a mother. *Bereavement Support is at no cost for the mother and family*
