Loss Support


When hello means goodbye…

When your path takes an unexpected turn, whether through miscarriage, stillbirth, or a baby with a serious medical condition; I can show you how to create a new map for your journey,  and walk with you on the difficult road .  I am not a medical provider, I am a spiritual, emotional and physical support for you to lean on.

In the privacy of your home, or in a hospital setting, I can be beside you to comfort you, assist you, and hold loving space for you as you process this difficult transition.  My skills as a birth doula are the foundation of what I do, but I am also able to help you be present in the process, to fully experience this time, and to find the joy in those moments as well.

Don’t let fear of cost stop you from reaching out.  Most loss services are available by donation.

As a Stillbirthday Birth & Bereavement trained Doula, I provide support prior to, during and after birth in any trimester and in any outcome.  SBD doulas are qualified to provide support in situations of fatal diagnosis, carrying to term, and NICU care.  SBD doulas are equally prepared to provide comprehensive support in live birth outcomes, including subsequent “rainbow” pregnancies, and can serve as a labor support in all birth situations.

I can provide:

  • Help with pre-planning and educational resources

  • Support as you advocate for your needs and wishes

  • Full physical and emotional comfort measures during birth and/or loss

  • Help communicating with family members and professionals

  • Gentle holding of the sacred space needed for coping

  • Logistical support for NICU care, memorial services or aftercare

  • Gentle listening and discussion

  • Recognition of the signs of postpartum mood disorders or trauma

  • Referrals for additional supports and services as needed
