“Shared sorrow is endurable sorrow. We were never meant to suffer alone; we are meant to comfort and encourage one another.”
Bob Kellemen, Author, Pastor & Academic Dean
Reproductive loss surrounds us. Unfortunately, we live in a culture that is uncomfortable with grief, leaving those suffering feeling isolated and alone. Reproductive loss includes, but is not limited to, miscarriage, stillbirth, infertility, hysterectomy, adoption placement, unwanted childlessness and abortion. Regardless of the type of reproductive loss, when life doesn’t go as anticipated, these losses occur with trauma and can lead to complicated grief.
At Sierra Pregnancy + Health we recognize reproductive loss can have a significant effect on men, women, family members and loved ones. We want to change the culture of disenfranchised grief and offer a safe place for those grieving to find hope and healing.
We offer faith-based and secular support through individual or group meetings and for those not in the greater Sacramento area, we provide remote support through confidential video conferencing.
If you or someone you know is hurting from a reproductive loss, please contact us for more information on how we can come alongside and offer care and support.
Be the Invitation to Heal
Many of us know someone who has experienced a reproductive loss. Often its common to be at a loss for the right words to say or wonder how best to support your loved one with good resources and referrals.
We can help you, be a safe place. Throughout the year we offer Life Perspectives’ Reproductive Grief Care Training to all who want to learn how to support those suffering from reproductive loss.
This training will:
- Broaden your understanding of grief and loss after miscarriage and abortion
- Provide you with essential knowledge and empathetic listening skills
- Help you explore how to be a safe place for hurting men and women, and provide healing resources to support those in your community
