Infertility, Miscarriage + Loss


Infertility + Miscarriage

Many of us have an expectation that when we finally decide to have a child, it will happen easily. While this is true for some women, others will face unforeseen fertility problems, miscarriage and loss.

My work with clients around these issues is informed by the intensive clinical training I received to better help me address these sensitive issues as well as my own journey to motherhood. 

Facts About Infertility and Miscarriage

  • A couple ages 29-33 with a normal functioning reproductive system has only a 20-25% chance of conceiving in any given month. 

  • Around 1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage. Some say this estimate is actually low.
