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, addressing the grief that surfaces immediately after having a miscarriage or wounds that develop over time as in the case of a diagnosis of infertility.
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.
