We are very keen to help men as we recognise that men can also be deeply affected by a pregnancy, termination, miscarriage or stillbirth. We will offer you confidential, free, appropriate counselling and support.
Sometimes a male counsellor will be available if that is your preference.
Many men put their feelings on hold and get through by focussing on supporting the mother and planning for the future.
Other people may have assumed that you will be “strong” and just keep going. This may lead some men to feel they have to ignore their grief and to focus on “getting on with life”.
By doing this they may bury their pain and never effectively deal with it.
If you can share your feelings with someone trained to help, we find this can give you the strength and support needed to move forward.
