Tuesday 24th October 2023 – 8pm (BST)
Do we ever truly move on from grief? This is a question many of us ask. When it comes to genetic loss, it’s very often a grief that we as individuals can grow around, whilst other emotions can co-exist and grow around too.
I’ll be joined by Julianne Boutaleb, perinatal psycologist and founder of Parenthood in Mind, as we explore what is meant by the phrase ‘ghosts in the nursery’ in relation to fertility trauma and genetic loss. We’ll talk about what might cause unexpected triggers throughout our lives and how we might support ourselves through these if they occur. We’ll also share how joy can co-exist alongside grief, focusing on how this is possible, even when we are living with loss.
As with all Paths to Parenthub webinars, members have the chance to shape the conversation by submitting your questions ahead of the webinar and on the night, I hope you will join us there.
(Please note that all webinars and live chats are recorded and made available the following day to members within the Paths to Parenthub website and the community app too).
Julianne is a highly experienced perinatal psychologist, who has worked for over 17 years in the NHS and in private practice with individuals and couples adversely impacted by infertility issues. As a member of BICA, she lectures and writes on how individuals and couples who are trying to conceive (TTC), pregnant or parenting following ART (IVF, ICSI, donor conception, surrogacy) or adoption may be psychologically affected.
