Support for women and their families experiencing emotional distress related to pregnancy loss or struggling to conceive.

We work with individuals and couples, at every stage of their journey to become parents.

Being here reading this page, you probably know all too well the pain, deep worry and intense grief that pregnancy loss or fertility challenges place on each partner as well as their relationship. In our experience, each partner faces the stress, worry and/or devastation and loss in very different ways. This can make healing from loss or worry about conceiving so much harder. Not to mention that there are so many intense feelings, from guilt, to shame, to anxiety, depression, and despair that may settle in your body, mind and your world. 

Each counsellor at Holding Space is extremely sensitive to the needs of women and their partners who are struggling to conceive or feel knocked down by loss. We know how isolating this experience is. Even though many go through this, there is not enough permission and invitation to share socially the intense emotions, including fear and loss, among others.

We are here to help.

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”

― Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
