A safe place.....to grieve and hope
I have worked as a Nurse for over 20 years, and for most of this time I have specialised in early pregnancy and gynaecology.
Through both my nursing and counselling I have come to understand both the physical and emotional trauma that a pregnancy loss can be, and have supported many women and their partners through this. I know that the pain in early loss is often hidden and faced alone as there are concerns and fears about discussing it in our normal friendship and work networks.
I understand about the cycle of hope and despair that comes with recurrent pregnancy loss and the truly difficult process of deciding whether to keep hoping or to stop trying.
I have supported many people who are facing the possibility or reality of not being able to have children of their own, and the implications of this loss for the rest of their lives.
Sometimes it can feel too overwhelming.
I also have an understanding of the pain that can surface after an abortion, and how this can be a very lonely place.
I offer a space to express the pain, sadness and frustration; and to walk with you on this difficult journey.
