There are no words to describe the loss and grief of a baby or child – it is a unique experience, which is experienced differently by every parent. If you become pregnant after babyloss, you might be feeling on top of it, or you could be feel anxious, scared and unsure of how to prepare and what to expect.
There are many reasons behind why I run small group antenatal classes and 1:1 sessions and one of them is because you may be preparing for birth after loss – a small group can feel more supportive, while giving you an antenatal course with other parents or you may prefer 1:1 sessions to talk openly and prepare around your own fears and emotions. There’s no right way with this, it is what feels best for you.
I have worked with expectant and new parents since 2002 – I am passionate about providing good information, practical skills, discussion, support and reassurance, along with the chance to ask questions and personalised birth preparation.
I have also experienced babyloss – my third child died when he was three days old. This has given me an insight into babyloss and grief and this has enabled me to work with a lot of grieving parents when they are pregnant again.
