Support After Abortion or Miscarriage

The care and counseling following a reproductive loss is very personal and must align with the needs of that individual.  Whether addressing grief or the wound that surfaces immediately after having a miscarriage or in the case of an abortion it may emerges years later, and the challenge is to meet that individual where they are. Some wounds 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.  The pastoral care programs listed below provide emotional, social, and spiritual support and are designed to meet and care for you on this journey.
