Perinatal & Infant
“Do not judge the bereaved mother. She comes in many forms. She is breathing, but she is dying. She may look young, but inside she has become ancient. She smiles, but her heart sobs. She walks, she talks, she cooks, she cleans, she works, she is, but she is not, all at once. She is here, but part of her is elsewhere for eternity.”

Perinatal and Infant Death
If you or a partner have suffered the loss of a miscarriage, stillbirth, or newborn death we invite you to come and receive specialized counseling to honor the precious life gone too soon. Perinatal Death is commonly misunderstood and minimized in our society and it can lead us to feel very isolated and unsure of how to move forward as everyone around you seems to do. SilverLeaf counselors are specially trained not only as clinical psychotherapist, but they are also certified in perinatal loss care. This counseling practice is the only practice in the state of Maryland that specializes in Perinatal and Neonatal Death.
