Miscarriage & Abortion Support

Like birth, the unexpected or planned end of a pregnancy can greatly benefit from in-person comfort and reassurance during the process.

Many people after having a miscarriage or abortion will say afterwards “I wish I had someone with me!”.

It is common for people to go through these experiences at home without in-person care, be it a spontaneous miscarriage or a miscarriage/abortion that is being induced with medication or other methods. You do not have to go through this experience alone! Having an experienced person with you for support can make all the difference in your experience.

Having an experienced and understanding support person with you and your partner or family, if applicable, can make your experience a much more comforted and empowering one as your body works to let go of the pregnancy.

  • Personalized education to help you sort through your holistic and clinical options
  • Guidance on what to expect physically throughout the process
  • Assistance in making a “plan” for before, during and after the miscarriage / abortion process.
