We offer psychological therapy if you’re experiencing mental health difficulties following a miscarriage or pregnancy loss before 24 weeks, within the last 2 years. This includes termination for medical reasons or unsuccessful fertility treatment.
We can offer an open and supportive space for you and your partner during this difficult time in your life.
We also work closely with other services, such as specialist bereavement midwives and perinatal mental health teams, who may also be able to help you.
We offer psychological therapy if you’re experiencing mental health difficulties from early baby loss.
We offer support to women and birthing people who experience significant difficulties with their mental health due to loss. These difficulties could include grief, depression or anxiety, and may be affecting day-to-day life, such as work, relationships, sleep.
Once you have been referred to us, we will arrange a first appointment with you to talk to you about your situation and how we may be able to help
The support and advice we offer may include:
- A safe space to share experiences
- Information about how the brain and body responds to trauma, loss, and grief
- Managing emotional and mental health difficulties
- Managing relationships
- Developing coping strategies
We may offer alternative support through other services, but we will talk to you about this.
Your partner is welcome to join you for your sessions, if that is something you both want.
We also offer short-term partner support, and we may suggest other community-based support services if we feel it would help.
