JOEL supports families who are trying to conceive, throughout pregnancy and parenting after experiencing the devastation of baby loss.
Subsequent pregnancies can be a time filled with fear, anxiety, and dread terrified you will lose your precious baby. How you feel is completely normal and you are not alone, it is important to not feel isolated and to be able to talk to others who know exactly how you feel.
Try to be kind to yourself, it is difficult to switch off feelings of anxiety and worry, we have been there ourselves and know how you feel. We have lots of different ways in which we can support you and guide you through your baby loss and subsequent rainbow pregnancy and parenting journey.
