Sadly, the death of a baby is not a rare tragedy, currently, approximately 15 babies die before, during or soon after birth every day in the UK.
Often, with no explanation why a baby has died in the womb or within the first month of life, parents are left with an overwhelming intense grief, often frightening, with emotional and physical reactions. You may feel life will never be normal again.
Some parents find support groups helpful in the beginning, knowing that they are not alone. However, as time moves on parents need may strategies to implement into daily life. During counselling, I will steer you through your emotional journey, whilst providing you with guidance and support.
At Lifecare Counselling, I recognise that losing your baby, affects both Mothers and Fathers, this grief is multi-dimensional and specialist counselling can be incredibly beneficial in your healing journey. Nothing can change what has happened or the devastating effects of losing your baby, but together we work on how to manage this experience, lessen your sense of helplessness, isolation and anxiety so that you can see a way forward.
I provide a unique specialist service to parents in my private practice and for baby loss charities.
If you feel that you are struggling after a stillbirth, please do not struggle alone. I can offer you a free 15 minute, no obligation telephone call to answer any questions you may have about specialist stillbirth counselling and to see if I could help you.
