Wellness in Life - Wholeness in Leadership
The Secret of Miscarriage and Stillbirth
Most ladies don’t talk about their experience of losing a baby early in pregnancy. The most prevalent reason for keeping quiet is people’s dismissive reaction, if they find out. For example:
- It was just a foetus, not a real baby yet.
- It was for the better – nature takes care of those who are too weak to survive.
- There will be many other opportunities to get pregnant again.
- Fortunately you have other kids.
These random remarks often comes from men or women who never went through the experience.
The first indifferent reactions are often from medical personal, who have seen such situations numerous times in their practices. However, this mommy-to-be lost her hope and dream to have a baby. This is an event that will change her forever. There is no consolation in all the apathetic comments that people air. Her hopes are replaced with fear, anger, guilt and shame.
The only person who are in a worse predicament is the man who used to be the daddy-to-be. He is invisible and nobody even thinks that he is affected in any way. He does know how to help or to fix his family. Suddenly, his wife seems to be a different person.
In my next workshop I am looking at this life event from all angles. I hope to address the secrets, myths and misconceptions. Let’s look at how we can understand each other a little better and offer support.
This online workshop is for every lady, counsellor, pastor and husband. Let’s bring comfort and hope in one of the darkest times in a women’s life.

Facing self-harm and loss?
Facing self-harm and loss?
Do you have the courage to face issues like self-harm and loss?
This question is not about performing a job of practicing your profession. The answer will have everything to do with being human.
It takes courage to stand up and say “I want to make a difference”. You don’t know whether you are doing or saying the right things. There is no real life manual with step-by-step directions and answers. Life is for the living and when we are brave enough to reach out to others we will a positive impact.
In the past people whispered about self-harm or suicide behind cupped hands. The shame and finger pointing were unbearable, but the increase of hopelessness and helplessness seem to increase with every pay-day. More and more people are facing the prospect of losing their income and livelihood.

Suicide - The Painful Topic
Suicide - The Painful Topic
Death by suicide is neither impulsive, cowardly, vengeful, controlling, nor selfish. There is more to this tragic phenomenon than meets the eye.
It is a myth that suicide is an impulsive, spur-of-the-moment whim. In most of the situations that we encounter the person openly told friends and family, often for years, that he/she felt depressive and suicidal. Years before his death, he attempted suicide by overdose and frequently discussed the incident subsequently. There is a chance that he has visited various websites about suicide and depression. Sometimes there are light-hearted comments or jokes about killing himself.
