When a pregnancy ends in miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, medical termination, stillbirth or neonatal death, you may experience a wide range of feelings. Grief takes many forms.  We are so sorry if you are here to look for these services. 

However, to support you in this journey we will:

  • See honor in the spirit of the grieving family                                        
  • Become curious to be sure to meet your needs
  • Learn from you as you experience this journey
  • Walk alongside of you
  • Practice being still because silence is sometimes necessary
  • Be patient as you navigate this path
  • Listen with our hearts as well as our ears
  • Work towards being accepting and bearing witness to your struggles
  • Become present in your pain and heartache
  • Function in the disorder and confusion because this may be where you are at for the moment
  • Enter the wilderness of the soul with you and your family
