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 the trauma and devastation of a pregnancy loss, and have supported many women and their partners through this.
I have seen the life shattering effects of a stillborn baby, and the extreme anxiety that can be present in a subsequent pregnancy.
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.
I know how life can be such a struggle after a traumatic birth.
I also have an understanding of the pain and trauma that can surface after a termination, and how this can be a very lonely place.
Sometimes it can feel too overwhelming.
I offer a space to express the pain, sadness, anxiety and frustration and to process the trauma.
To walk with you on this difficult journey.
