Pregnancy AFTER LOSS Support
IN TORONTO, DURHAM REGION, AND PEEL REGION (TORONTO, SCARBOROUGH, MARKHAM, NORTH YORK, PICKERING, AJAX, WHITBY, OSHAWA, MISSISSAUGA, BRAMPTON, OAKVILLE)
Unique support for SUBSEQUENT PREGNANCIES
So you’re pregnant again. Now what?
What if you could feel understood, supported, and reassured that all the range of emotions you are experiencing is normal? What if you could have access to other parents who have been there before? What if you didn’t have to feel alone?
That’s where I come in.
I’ve been there before. I found myself subsequently pregnant after a neonatal loss, and I know it’s scary, exciting, and all so unknown. I also know that a solid support system for pregnant parents after loss is often lacking, and that there can be so many triggers when it comes to pregnancy and birth.
You are not alone.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
We meet in your home over 1 or 2 sessions and cover the basics of birth with a focus on navigating through a subsequent pregnancy. Some things in particular we will discuss include:
Your options - healthcare providers, birth places, comfort measures, tests, interventions - whatever you want evidence-based information on to make your birth as comfortable as possible
How to handle grief and bonding at the same time
How to incorporate siblings into the new pregnancy, birth, and parenthood
Coping mechanisms for a subsequent pregnancy and all of it’s unique challenges
How to manage anxiety during birth and why this is so important
How to write a birth plan specific to pregnancy after loss, and help with facilitating communication with healthcare providers
All of the information is tailored to your individual needs and situation.
After our meeting, if you have any questions or need more information on anything, just reach out. We’ll keep in touch regularly, not only so you can feel supported throughout your pregnancy, but also so I can join in celebrating all the milestones with you! You may also find the Hello, Hope Subsequent Pregnancy Group on Facebook helpful for peer support.
Once you think you’re in labour, give me a heads up so I can make sure I’m available 24/7 for any questions or guidance you need. You can reach me via phone, text, or video chat - whether you want a reminder on comfort measure how-to’s, or just need a reminder that you’ve got this, I’ll be there.
