“515 babies were miscarried every single day in the UK”

2018 data, from

This is a shocking and huge figure but one that demonstrates you’re not alone. Yet, when you’re the one going through it, we can feel disoriented and lost.

An elderly relative, a partner, a friend – losing anyone we care about can be overwhelming and deeply saddening. Losing a baby during pregnancy – at any stage, is no different.

After pregnancy loss, you may be asking yourself questions such as ‘how can I be grieving for someone I never knew?’, ‘ what did I do wrong?’.  Perhaps you’re feeling impatient to move on: How can I get over this loss? Why haven’t I dealt with this already? How am I supposed to move beyond this?. And along with all the questions are the emotions and feelings – feeling numb, disorientated, lost (and entirely likely a whole lot more).

“I get it – I have been there too”

Helen, The Authentic Celebrant

Believe me, I get it – I have been there too. That is exactly where I was in 2009. And I know that when I lost my baby, the support available was very limited. I longed to try and understand what I had experienced and acknowledge what had happened to me and my baby. I was feeling lost and confused, not knowing what to do with all the emotion I was carrying with me.

Of course, losing a baby at any stage in pregnancy is a horrendous and awful experience to endure. Losing a baby in the first trimester can present some unique challenges – not least the taboo around announcing your pregnancy before 12 weeks. If you were keeping schtum until the required time, but experienced your loss before 12 weeks, it can then feel difficult to talk to anyone about what has happened. Perhaps you didn’t even realise you were pregnant– finding out that you were pregnant, but not anymore – all at once. Dealing with your loss, knowing that no one else even knew your baby existed can be tough. And it’s oftentimes not clear – at all – what to do after the loss or how to acknowledge and mark it; especially if a funeral is not an option.

The physical experience of your loss may have been a trauma in itself – which adds another layer of emotion to the situation. I remember being rushed into hospital, blue lights flashing, undergoing emergency surgery and then being placed on a maternity ward surrounded by pregnant women, immediately after finding out I had lost my baby – it was surreal to say the least (and I would now say, wholly inappropriate). I spent the following few days in a state of shock and bewilderment.

Begin to move towards peace

Fast forward to the present day and I can safely say that although I will absolutely never forget my loss, I can now live with my grief. My life has moved forward positively, whilst always remembering my baby – gone but certainly never forgotten.

Maybe you already have some ideas about how you want to try and move forward and would like support getting clarity on that; or you may be feeling lost and long to sit with your grief, at whatever stage you are at, for just a bit longer. Sometimes the only thing that will do is taking tangible action that reading a book or blog on its own can’t always achieve by itself.

It could be that you feel counselling is the right route for you -but don’t worry if you’re wondering what else is out there. Every woman has their own unique experience of loss and different approaches work for different people. I’m here to support you by providing a safe space, listening ear and suggestions for tangible ways to acknowledge your experience of pregnancy loss. All delivered in a trusted and confidential way. The Moving Towards Peace After Pregnancy Loss support programme will enable you to explore your thoughts and feelings – not counselling, rather support and encouragement to find the best ways for you to begin to move forward.

Developing a way to acknowledge and honour your loss can be a stepping stone to moving through your grief and beginning to reconcile your feelings.  By receiving support in the Moving Towards Peace After Pregnancy Loss programme, you will gift yourself an important stepping stone in moving through your grief. And the best bit is that this programme be done at any time – whether your loss was two months, two years or twenty years ago.

One thing I’ve learned from my own experiences is that when it comes to grief and loss it’s good to do whatever feels right for you. I read an article once that said of the feeling of despair “allow yourself to feel it…then take action”.  It is my mission to support other women who have experienced Pregnancy loss, like I did.
