A difficult fact to face: up to 15% of known pregnancies can end in miscarriage and 1 out of 200 pregnancies can end in a stillbirth. Unfortunately our modern culture doesn’t have rituals to help us to deal with this particular type of grief.
My deepest condolences if you are reading this page for yourself after suffering a loss.
Pregnancy loss can be devastating and we may feel paralyzed with our heavy grief. Our family & friends sometimes feel helpless to support us in this painful time.
EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) is a simple tapping technique that allows you to relieve distress by gently tapping on certain acupressure points on your body while focusing on the particular issue.
With pregnancy loss, we may also be feeling trauma, anger, guilt, and fear in addition to normal grief. EFT will not get rid of normal grief, but it can help release unnecessary distress, so that you aren’t so weighed down and are able to move through the stages of grief more easily.
A few sessions with me can relieve a lot of the heaviness & give you the tools you need to help yourself when the waves of grief feel overwhelming. EFT can also be helpful for your partner and any family members who need support with their feelings.
