The care and counseling following a reproductive loss is very personal and must align with the needs of an individual. The challenge is to meet individuals where they are, whether addressing the grief that surfaces immediately or the wound that surfaces years later, which can occur in the case of an abortion.
The area of grief due to reproductive loss is sensitive within our families and within our culture. Today we advocate for all who have directly or indirectly experienced this loss to look for healing and reconciliation. The pastoral care programs listed below provide emotional, social, and spiritual support and are designed to meet and care for you on this journey.
