Unresolved Pregnancy Loss Counselling
Miscarriage is common (1 in 4 in Australia) not to mention loss due to ectopic pregnancy, IVF, abortion and neonatal death. Unresolved pregnancy loss can have a profound impact on both men and women. Yet within our society it is an unspeakable subject. Untold number of mothers and fathers keep silent about their pain, guilt, shame, hurt, some deny, dismiss, suppress, it is kept private and hidden. Many feel alone and unaware of how prevalent it is.
