Find Comfort and Peace After Pregnancy Loss and Perinatal Trauma
Our Trauma Counsellors understand that reproductive trauma is so often overlooked, despite how many women are impacted by this kind of loss and trauma. The devastation of pregnancy loss and infertility can be an incredibly difficult experience, and adequate healing and grieving is often needed to find peace and move forward. A traumatic birth, another common reproductive experience, where women experience distress during or after a birth, can also result in an ongoing trauma response that requires processing and healing.
