How Petals can help:

The security of the counselling setting encourages and enables women, men and couples to talk openly about recurrent miscarriage and explore the fears and anxieties that inevitably grow through this experience.  The challenges to a couple’s relationship are many and varied and having space and time with a professional counsellor can be valuable and supports the complex experience and journey of recurrent miscarriage.
