Pregnancy loss can affect the whole family. When your baby loses their baby, it is a double loss to a grandparent. You suffer your own loss as well as your child’s. You see their dream of parenthood collapse and you experience their grief as well as your own. How can you get through this yourself while being completely present, supportive, and a source of comfort for your child? What should you say—and what should you not say? Your tears are both for the loss of your grandchild and for the terrible pain your child is forced to endure.
PLSP counselors are experienced in helping grandparents process their own feelings of loss and find ways to support their children.
