What is Perinatal Grief Counseling?

The loss of a pregnancy, newborn baby or the dream of a pregnancy is a devastating experience that brings indescribable pain and heartache. Grief may leave you feeling immobilized, angry, scared or uncertain of the future. Many search for meaning in their loss, question how to grieve or worry they will never be able to resume “normal” life. Grief counseling can help you move through this journey by learning about the stages of grief, how everyone grieves differently, and how to find peace in time.

What Our Clients Say

“I have known Courtney for almost 12 years now. She helped me and my husband through a very hard time in our lives. She was my counselor when we were pregnant with our first child. She was so caring and answered all of our questions when we were waiting to hear about our son. Unfortunately he passed away 8 hours after was born. Courtney was there comforting us especially my husband. She is the nicest and understanding person I know.”

- Kelly D. (Google)

“Courtney went above and beyond during the most difficult period of my life; the pregnancy, NICU stay and passing of my baby girl Abby in 2007. She continued to be a support throughout the passing years and I’ll be forever grateful for her care, compassion and concern for me and my little family during a very emotional and sad time in our lives. I honestly don’t know how I would have made it through without her.”
