Comfort & care for Life After Baby Loss

We both know that there's nothing that will take your pain away right now, but I have some things for you that will make it easier to carry.

I'm April Boyd, social worker, psychotherapist, coach & mother to Nora,
a little girl whom I knew only briefly but who forever changed my life.

I'm so sorry to be meeting you on this side of motherhood.

hello mama,

"The first step is the hardest one, and the steps are many but do it for yourself because you deserve it."

"I learned its okay to be sad and miss your baby and it doesn't make me a bad mom
to my new baby."

retreat participant

"The tools I was able to take home from this will help me not only in my grief but in my everyday life as well."


"It will open you up in a good way and bring peace and light about your loss"


I'm with you.

When you lose a baby, you don't just lose your child. You lose your future, your plans, your dreams, your ability to trust life.  

Wrap your loved one in comfort, care & understanding.
