Return to Zero Centre For Healing

I am thrilled to announce that I am now a resource on the Return to Zero Centre For Healing pregnancy loss directory!

I am so honoured to have my name alongside so many other incredible supports.

Actually, I am more than honoured.

Having my name on this directory means so much more. Let me tell you why.

You see, about 3 years ago when I was a new doula, I took a Baby Loss Family Advisor training with Sherokee Isle.

The training was incredible. I learned so much from the other bereaved mothers.

I shared. I cried; and I grew.

During the training, a film titled “Return to Zero” was mentioned, and I made a mental note to make sure I saw it.

A few weeks later, I found myself sitting on the couch, completely engaged in the film.

The movie is based on the true story of a couple whose son, Norbert was born still. The film beautifully depicted the complexity of loss, love, and healing.  It was raw…and real.

I remember sitting there in tears. Yes, I was crying because I was sad, but I was also crying because I felt relieved!

Relieved that the emotions I had felt after my pregnancy losses were normal. I wasn’t alone.

The story of a couple I have never met, fueled my desire to support other women through the aftermath of pregnancy and infant loss.

It has been 3 years since I first learned of this couple and of Norbert.

And I think of them often as I grow my business.

A couple months back after I rebranded my business and chose to focus soley on pregnancy loss coaching, I was having some serious self doubt.

Was this the right decision? Was it the right move? Was my service needed?

One sleepless night, I started to draft up an email to the Return to Zero Centre for Healing, to introduce myself and my business.

Then the self doubt crept back in and I deleted the draft.

Then about two weeks later, I was chatting with my husband when I got an email alert on my phone.

When I looked down, I was in utter disbelief….the email was from Kiley Hanish. Norbert’s mother.

Hands shaking, I opened the email to read:

“I  came across your webiste and wanted to reach out. We would love to add you to our resources”

That email was the exact reassurance I needed.

It silenced my self doubt, and proved to me once again, that I did not in fact choose this work…it chose me.

And I am forever grateful.
