Our meetings are led by parents, not by a therapist. That said, we do have support from our clinical coordinator Terri Adams, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). Terri specializes in Counseling for Women and Couples Facing the Challenges of Perinatal Loss, Stillbirth and/or Miscarriage.

Having sustained a significant loss, grieving is a normal part of the healing process. The ordinary stages of grief are: shock and denial, anger, depression, and eventual integration. The duration and order of each stage varies from one person to another. However, if feelings of hopelessness persist, you may wish the support of a professional therapist. Here's a list of professionals in Maryland/Virginia/D.C., including some questions you may wish to ask when selecting a therapist.
