Miscarriage Counselling

After a miscarriage, many women and their partners feel the need to grieve.  At the same time, friends and family members might have difficulty understanding this need.  Perhaps very few people knew about the pregnancy, or perhaps no one knew.  When a miscarriage takes place within the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, it is likely that a couple might not have told many friends and loved ones that they were expecting, and therefore no one knows to ask about the pregnancy, and consequently a couple may feel that they are grieving in isolation.  Sadness, shock, grief, and even feelings of devastation are very normal in the days and months following a miscarriage, and bereavement counselling can be an invaluable support factor in facing the days ahead and bring restored hope for the future.  For women who have suffered a miscarriage, Options offers bereavement counselling through The Journey, a 10-week programme.  Please contact us to find out more about The Journey.

    I was very down, sad, and lonely when I came to Options. The Journey programme has helped me to understand my feelings and deal with them... I have come so far, and didn’t think I would get to this place when I first walked through those doors. Forever grateful for the provision of free counselling and the time the volunteers spend helping us.
