There are so many variations of loss that are possible during the perinatal journey. This experience has many ranges: The loss of a pregnancy. The grieving of an anticipated birthing experience. The guilt felt when mourning the life a mother had before having a baby.
The transition to motherhood brings significant changes, not just in one's daily routine but also in identity and expectations.
The therapeutic space can be one of validation, offering support in navigating the emotional terrain. We can explore and express your emotions, work through the changes in your interpersonal relationships that were influenced by the loss, and create new meaning.
Therapy can lend you the space to find balance, heal, and embrace the transformative journey of motherhood with resilience and self-compassion.
