    Unhappy New here, and wishing I wasn't.

    Having a hard time coping with an early first trimester miscarriage that took place in December, and have tried to locate a grief counselor with no avail. Anyone else have luck in this? I live in IL, if that helps. I've done tons of searches and have met with a few psychiatrists that weren't able to provide the support I was looking for (in fact, one of them told me I'd be better suited "finding a therapist who specializes in miscarriage grief". Unfortunately, it hasn't been an easy trek. Anyone find something similar--or even an online site that would be a good starting point? I'd appreciate any tips or suggestions you could provide. Thanks muchly in advance...

    Default not much advice in finding someone

    except maybe a local IF clinic might have a list of referrals? I just wanted to send you a hug and let you know I am sorry for your loss.

    Default I agree with sfpeirce

    I am so very sorry for your loss. Your best bet is to contact the social worker at a local IF clinic and I am sure she can lead you in the right direction.

    In the mean time please explore the rest of our boards. We have a moderated grief and loss board that offers a lot of support. Liz moderates it and she is a world of wisdom. Also the girls here know what your going through because we have all been right were you are.

    Take care of yourself
    Thoughts are with you

    Default hope this helps..

    Hi Momma,
    I too am seeing a counselor to deal with my latest miscarriage (#4). I live in Indiana, and am getting counseling at a place called the Cabin. It is at 116th and Michigan Rd. in Indianapolis. I know you are in IL, I am not sure how far you are from IN and if this would be an option for you..they have 2 counselors /psychologists that specialize in pregnancy loss and infertility. I have seen one twice now and have my next appointment next week and I think she has been very helpful. She was a IVF nurse prior to becoming a therapist. If you would like more info. please send me a message but I got the referral to them from my reproductive endocrinologist. If you do not see one, you may want to call a local office of one, I am sure they would be happy to refer you somewhere and a lot of them require psychological testing prior to IVF so I am sure they have someone they use. {HUGS} to you!
