It is difficult to find the words to describe this type of grief. Perinatal loss impacts women differently and can be absolutely devastating to any person. The CDC estimates that 1 in 100 pregnancies are impacted by perinatal loss at 20 weeks of pregnancy or later. Grief can deeply impact any life even for expected losses like an elderly parent, but the loss of a child during pregnancy is a different and deeper experience altogether. In addition, the shockwave of the loss impacts not just the mother but also the relationships and the community around them.
GearingUp offers a robust and evidence based grief treatment program, and our perinatal grief therapies are delivered with a deep sense of compassion and dignity. We teach clients the most effective ways to manage and resolve overwhelming emotions and thoughts that arise from this unthinkable grief. Through a combination of research proven therapy techniques and coping skills from systems such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), clients are able to find their way back and re-establish their lives moving forward. We augment these programs with the best parts of multiple systems including mindfulness, radical acceptance, and more to deliver clients the best tools to find a new way to define tomorrow.
