Losing a baby at any point during a pregnancy is a tragic situation, but losing a full-term baby is a specific type of devastation. For many women, it is an unfortunate reality, and for that reason, we at the Blossom Method have designed specialized programs for women and couples who are dealing with such an issue. At the Blossom Method, we offer support for a number of different fertility and loss issues, including the loss of a baby.

When to Seek Help Coping with the Death of a Baby

If you have experienced the death of a baby at full term, you know that your pain is unique. Having gone through the entire pregnancy only to be left without a baby is particularly difficult, since in addition to feeling loss and pain, many people around you don’t know how to offer support, and many people may simply hope that you’ll just “move on.” This can make your life hard, since things like going to work, getting out of bed, and even making dinner can seem like impossible tasks. You need time to mourn and heal, and many people won’t know how to help you cope with the loss of your baby. If you find yourself struggling to get through your daily life, contact the Blossom Method for help.

Types of Baby Bereavement Therapies Offered

At the Blossom Method, we understand that everyone’s needs are different; what works for one woman or couple may not be the ideal path for everyone. For that reason, we offer a variety of different services, including individual therapy, couples counseling, and parent-to-parent support groups.
