Miscarriage is an experience that gets far less space socially than it should. Until someone has experienced this type of loss, it's difficult to understand the many ways people can be affected. The experience isn't the same for anyone (and isn't the same twice), but our society has not learned about the importance in giving people space and support in their grief.
Going through this type of loss can spark many emotional and interpersonal challenges, and it can be so helpful to get support in processing and integrating the experience either alone or with a partner or partners who are also grieving.
Feelings of failure, fear that a future pregnancy won't be healthy, and the grief of loss of an identity as a parent if you've lost your first pregnancy, are all normal reactions (among many many normal reactions). Through support, education, relationship work, ritual, and more, I can help you honour and move forward from your miscarriage.
There are as many reasons to choose abortion as there are people who become pregnant.
The emotional and physical process of abortion can come with the unexpected, and I'm here to support you through all of it.
You are not alone.
