Cathy Armstrong counsels many women facing pregnancy that lost their mother from death (at an early age. recently, or several years ago. She also counsels women that are experiencing mother/daughter issues currently.
The loss of a mother can have an emotional and painful impact on some women facing pregnancy. Becoming a mother can be challenging without the emotional bond and support sometimes a woman needs from her mother, whether the loss was years ago or a day ago.
Pregnancy can be complicated and confusing for many women during this important milestone and rite of passage. No matter how much we want to live a happy and joy filled life and be happy about the birth of a child...life can be painful and leave many women feeling shattered, lost, confused, and alone. Grief is not just about the loss of a loved one!
There is an intimate bond many times between a pregnant woman and her mother and being pregnant without this special relationship for some women can be devastating and traumatic. Family of origin issues many times crop up in preparation for motherhood. Issues with former pregnancy termination, loss of a child/baby can create emotional pain in a pregnant woman.

Life can seem unfair and there are times it make no sense. In-law problems occur, relationships break up, complications during pregnancy can occur.
Life during pregnancy can be unpredictable and it isn't always smooth and doesn't always go the way we want it to. Events happen in our lives that we have no control of and it makes us feel helpless and hopeless at times. We cannot control death, change, or the uncertainty that life gives us. Feeling alone during pregnancy and leave us feeling like there is an Empty Black Hole in our Hearts.
Sometimes during pregnancy, a woman needs extra support and need a safe place to Be Heard, Listened To, Validated, Affirmed, and Believed In.
We sometimes take our pain out on ourselves, others we love and our lives can become unmanageable. Our ability to parent and be in a relationship, study, be effective at work are impacted.Life becomes out of balance, and your inner sense of who we are is off kilter.
In psychotherapy you rediscover who you are in the midst of grief. You will learn to find hope, faith, self-love, love for those around your and allow yourself to continue to love your mother in your heart as you extend your love to your unborn child, family,those that support and love you.
You learn about mindfulness, to be present with what feels like endless pain, and at the same time create a spot in your life for positive new experiences in living in the moment.
Life is not always a fun and happy adventure and we are often challenged with a variety of situations that bring emotional pain, heart ache, feelings of anger and abandonment, feelings of confusion, and feeling stuck and not wanting to move forward...shame is often felt as we think we are suppose to happy and excited as we fail to have "that expected glow of pregnancy."
