Hello, I'm Aditi. I am here to support.

I offer specialized life coaching for women who are navigating their way through pregnancy and/or infant loss.

Hi, my name is Aditi Loveridge and I am a holistic infant and pregnancy loss coach and I am also a birth postpartum doula, specializing in supporting families who have experienced previous loss.

First of all, I want to thank you so much for visiting my website, I know it takes a lot of courage to seek out support, so I thank you for that and I’m honored that your taking the time to find out more about me and the services that I offer.

So a few years ago, I had experienced two pregnancy losses of my own and I remember how lonely and isolated I felt, as I’m sure you have as well, and I just didn’t talk about the intensity of the grief that I had felt.

Society and well meaning friends told me to move on, that everything happens for a reason. So I began to silence myself but within that silence, I was still struggling. I remember the world around me was the same and yet, I had changed, everything about me was different. The way that I viewed life had changed, the way that I moved through this world was different. And I didn’t know how to move forward from that place, I just felt stuck.

Eventually, over time I began to speak my truth and I began sharing about my losses with some family, friends and acquaintances, and through sharing my experiences, it was amazing because women started opening up on their own. And I suddenly realized that I wasn’t alone, yet we were all struggling in silence. The more I opened up, the more I began to heal. I can’t even tell you how much talking helped me heal.

There is so much power in sharing our experiences, sharing our grief, celebrating our joy. Having to tribe, a community that understands the intensity that surrounds the grief around baby loss is why I do the work that I do.

I have since made it my life’s mission to support women in defining their new normal and learning healthy ways in which to move forward. And with each coaching conversation I have, I too continue to heal and move deeper into myself. I can’t tell you what an amazing gift that is.

But I do understand from my own journey, that grief is not linear, it ebbs and it flows. When my partner and I decided to try to conceive again and when we got pregnant, the grief had manifested into intense anxiety and fear and many times anger. And those emotions did not dissipate after the birth of my rainbow baby. I understand now that emotions surrounding grief change. They linger and they can surprise you at the most uncertain times in your journey.

So, whether you’ve just lost your angel, are trying to conceive again, are pregnant, or just some time has passed, I want you to know that there is always space for healing. This journey is not easy, and it is not one that you need to walk alone.

I have found so many women need to talk about their loss, we need to speak our babies names, we need to honor our due dates, we need to honor the day we gave birth to a baby that was still. Just through talking alone, we let go of grief and we make room for joy to come in. We cannot make room for joy until we truly and wholeheartedly, embrace the darkness first. But in order to do that, we need a safe space to do it.

So please, today, if you are feeling like this journey is difficult, more difficult than you could have imagined, contact me, let’s make a time to talk. Tell me your story, tell me your baby’s name, tell me the areas in which your life has changed. Let’s embrace the darkness together so that we can make room for the joy.

So contact me, let’s talk.

I have just experienced infant or pregnancy loss

loss

I am truly sorry for your loss. Whether you carried your baby for 6 weeks, 36 weeks or 6 hours, no family should ever have to feel the deep pain of losing a child.

Losing a baby is a life changing and traumatic event. Despite what society dictates, this type of loss is not something you should or can easily just “get over”. The range of emotions that you are feeling, no matter the emotion, are valid. And real. Your world has undeniably changed and likely so have you. I understand where you are, because I was once in that same place.

You deserve a sacred space in which to honour your loss.  A space where you can tell your story. Or a space that allows you to sit in silence when there are no more words. A space where you can come to cry. A space where you can release what you have been bottling up so you can make room to heal.

Your story matters. Your voice matters. You matter. So let’s talk.

These coaching sessions focus on creating a sacred space to honour your feelings and your loss.

I am pregnant again after a previous loss

Congratulations on your pregnancy! Are you feeling that what should be a joyous time is instead full of stress, anxiety and concern? Before you lost your pregnancy, losing a baby was probably not even on your radar. However, after your loss it is likely at the forefront of your mind. You might be wondering why you can’t just let go and relax. When you have lost a previous pregnancy it is It is completely normal to have these feelings. Not only is it normal, it is expected. These emotions can make you feel extremely isolated. I understand where you are, because I was once in that same place.

You deserve a sacred space where you can honour your feelings and speak truthfully. A space where you can allow yourself to be seen, without judgement; only love. A space where you can walk through your fears safely. A place where you can embrace the joy, connection, hope and possibilities this pregnancy can bring.

Your feelings matter. Your voice matters. YOU matter. So let’s talk.

These coaching sessions focus on building trust and creating ways to feel safe during your pregnancy.

I am trying to conceive after a previous loss

conceptionI want to first applaud your courage. Deciding to conceive again after loss is not only courageous, it is also a true demonstration of choosing love over fear. In making this decision, I understand that it can come with its own set of challenges. When trying to conceive after loss, it is normal to feel a lack of trust; in yourself, your body or something higher than you. It is also normal to develop a fear of failure.  Feelings of distrust and fear is why conceiving after loss is surrounded by more caution than with joy. I understand where you are, because I was once in that same place.

You deserve a space that honours where you are in your conception journey. A space where you can wholeheartedly acknowledge the many emotions that surface. A space that empowers you to fully sit with your emotions so that you can begin to take the “caution” off and truly make room for the joy.

Your feelings matter. Your voice matters. YOU matter. So let’s talk.

These coaching sessions focus on creating a sacred space where you can learn to lean into trust and make room for joy.

I have just given birth to my rainbow baby but I'm still struggling

You are not alone.  You might be wondering why your anxieties have not dissipated after the birth of your baby.  The fact that there are still storms brewing in your mind might come as a complete surprise. Your previous loss(es) have likely shook you to your core and you probably are struggling to find stable ground again. As you watch your baby meet milestones that your angel baby will never meet, grief may also unexpectedly show up. You may not want to talk about these deep emotions with family or friends out of the fear that no one will understand. I understand where you are, because I was once in that same place.

You deserve a sacred space that understands how loss can change you. A space that can help you realize and define your “new” self. A place that can hold space for your unraveling while simultaneously reminding you of your strength. A space that can celebrate your new baby while supporting you through any grief or anxiety that might show up. A space to realize you truly are not alone.

Your feelings matter. Your voice matters. YOU matter. So let’s talk.

These coaching sessions focus on building trust and creating ways to feel safe during your pregnancy.

I found out that the more I opened up, the more I began to heal...

I understand your journey and offer you a sacred space...

After my losses, I found myself contemplating everything: my deep rooted beliefs, the values I held close, my career, and who I really was now. Everything you think you know about yourself changes after you have lost.

The journey into motherhood opened me up in more way than I was ever prepared for. It is a sacred journey that delves into the deepest parts of our souls. It cracks open the darkest places of yourself, allowing a new light and wisdom to seep through, if you allow it. Once a new understanding begins to seep in, there are no limits to the life that you can create for yourself, your children (both living and angel babies), and your family.

As your coach, I will walk along side of you and support you in discovering your inner strength. I will create a safe and sacred space for you to let your guard down, allow the cracks to open, and let in the light. I will see you, without judgement, and honour exactly who you are in the moment.

Do you feel alone?

You are not alone. All the feelings you are having around pregnancy or infant loss are normal and expected. When you lose a baby, it’s not an easy journey. There is a multitude of emotions that you can feel, like distrust, anger, loneliness, jealousy, anxiety, and worthlessness. I encourage you if you are struggling, no matter where on your journey you might be, start telling your story. You might be surprised at who shows up for you, and how you show up for your own healing.

At the beginning of all my client calls, I do a centering meditation. It helps to get people out of their head, and more into their heart so that they can be present for the conversation; because healing doesn’t come from your head, it comes from your soul, your heart.

Try this FREE Centering meditation below. It will help you clear your mind, and come back to your true center. I use this same meditation technique with every coaching call and client.
