A Miscarriage Is a Complicated Loss That Shouldn’t Be Grieved Alone
At Tribeca Maternity, we understand that no matter what stage of the pregnancy it occurred, a miscarriage is a complicated and difficult loss. It is also an experience that many women live with in silence.
A miscarriage shouldn’t be grieved in isolation. In therapy at our NYC offices in Tribeca, as well as phone and video chat therapy, we lead you in the process of grieving this loss so you don’t have to go it alone.
In Order to Grieve, You Need to Talk About It (But Not Necessarily With Everyone)
Talking about a miscarriage is an important part of the grieving process. We understand that a miscarriage is as much of an emotional experience as a medicalized one, and both aspects need to be talked about. In therapy, we’ll help you unpack the full experience of the miscarriage. By talking about it, you can take back control: control of your body, attention to your feelings, and control of your story.
After a miscarriage, you may feel pressure to tell some people and not others. The decision should be yours. We will help you figure out who you want to tell and how.
An Individual’s Experience May Not Be the Same as the Couple’s
A miscarriage may be experienced differently by each partner. And it is also a loss that lives within a couple. In couples therapy, we’ll work with both partners to acknowledge, unpack, and grieve this loss, including how it affected them individually and together. We’ll help partners stay close, both emotionally and physically, through this loss.
