This is a follow up post to one I had done three weeks ago, which you can read on this link http://bit.ly/paEEHf
The feedback I got from the post -through the phone, SMS’s, emails and in the comments section were plenty, almost everyone saying they know of women who have undergone such losses. Some ladies shared their personal stories of loss and I salute them for their courage and bravery, because I know that they helped many readers just by doing so.
Most of the time, friends and families are always there to provide the much needed help and support to a woman or couple going through such difficult moments, but sometimes more specialised help might be necessary, and this can be in the form of counselling.
So today I would like to share the contacts of a professional counsellor, just incase you feel the need to follow-up the issue at a professional level, have questions you would like answered, or if you would like to refer someone and/or their family.
Below is the note from a counsellor who was kind enough to allow Mummy Tales to share her contacts through this blog.
“My name is Anita Awuor and I’m a professional Counseling Psychologist. It is hard to lose a child at any age, whether the child is in-vitro or when the child is older. I have spoken to parents who have lost their little ones at both stages. And it cannot be denied that the pain is there.
Personally, I have lost two babies, each loss coming with with many questions, very few answers and a whole lot of tears. My babies were 12 weeks in-vitro, and I felt each loss acutely. But what I know is that the pain lessens. The sadness lessens, but the sense of loss still remains. And yet like all lossess in life, you will overcome it. Though it may not seem like it at the begining but it is possible.
If you have any questions or issues you would like me to address, you can contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org “
