If you have lost a baby — we won't leave you alone in your bereavement

You may be angry. Surely, you are sad… If you have lost a baby and are feeling left alone or don't know how to cope with the pain of grief: Come to us. We will be there to listen to you sympathetically and to support you during the stages of bereavement.

Our counselling — unobtrusive and non-directional

We will counsel and accompany you after a miscarriage, stillbirth, or early neonatal death. We will talk with you about any feelings of guilt and anger you might experience, about bereavement rituals, about new pregnancy and potential conflicts with your partner. Our counselling is free of charge and for you individually as well as for couples. Come to us with any questions and issues you might like to voice—of course, in a confidential and safe environment.
