Coping with Infertility or Infant Loss

Pregnancy, delivery and the months following the birth of a child bring about significant change for a woman and her family. Added to that, sometimes pregnancy does not happen as quickly or easily as expected resulting in heartbreak and trauma. Moodiness and detachment are changes not often expected when planning for a baby. Infertility or loss can be difficult to process, can result in relational difficulties and impact sense of self and mood. Feelings of stress, anxiety, depression or irritable mood are typical yet can be a struggle to manage. Occasionally more significant symptoms arise that were not present prior to pregnancy or birth of a child.  For those who have experienced grief and loss due to infertility or other medical and non-medical reasons, counseling can be helpful. The loss of a baby prior, during or after delivery is often a traumatic experience for all of those involved. Supportive therapy services can help to work through loss to help achieve peace for women, partners and their families. Consider counseling during and following pregnancy to encourage healthy families and let this time be a time for growth and peace in your life.
