What it’s like for partners

You and your partner have both suffered a loss. Partners often experience many of the same emotions as the woman after a loss, especially feelings of loss, sadness and confusion.

In addition, you may struggle to find the best way to support your partner following the loss. You may feel helpless and upset by your partner’s physical pain and emotional responses, as well as their own feelings and thoughts, which can be difficult to understand.

While it is important for you to show care and concern to your partner, you deserve to look after yourself as well, by finding your own sources of support, comfort and information.

You and your partner may feel differently about the loss now or in the future.

Reflect provides you the same time and space to consider your thoughts and feelings.
