Do dads experience perinatal grief and depression after baby loss? Without a doubt YES! Grief after loss is non selective. Men face a unique set of challenges as they try to support their partner through the journey after losing a baby.
The path to parenting can cause many different emotional responses and for many, the journey is exhausting. You may find it difficult to know if these are normal experiences or part of a more significant problem, such as postnatal depression or anxiety. Our comprehensive assessment and four week program is developed to provide guidance and support after baby loss. Here's a quick checklist for starters.
It is time to change. For too long, couples have not received the care they need following a miscarriage. The research identifies the scale of the problem and it is not out of the question to extend the risk of PTS to unsuccessful IVF cycles.
The hardest part of the grieving process after losing a pregnancy is the intense feelings of guilt. Wondering what you did wrong, thinking it was your fault. Many thoughts cross the minds of those who have experienced baby loss.
Throughout your journey after loss, it’s important to honour your progress. Be kind and gentle with yourself. Provide your body with the love and care it is telling you it needs. Honour the hard days. Embrace tomorrow.
