Pregnancy Loss
Art Therapy Group

Join other mamas as we collectively process the trauma of pregnancy loss through creative and expressive avenues. No art experience needed, as the focus is not on the product but on the power of the creative process to heal.

Rebecca is a trained Art Therapist and Professional Counselor. She is passionate about the integration of art into the healing of grief and trauma after pregnancy loss. Before pursuing her dual degree, Rebecca experienced both a still birth and first trimester miscarriage. She created this four-session curriculum as a part of her thesis for her Master's program. We are excited to offer this beautiful piece of Rebecca's heart to loss moms throughout Middle Tennessee.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to have any art experience?
Zero art experience is necessary. Just a willingness to create, while trying to engage in the process of healing through art. “Making art is always a process of structuring chaos.”  - Dr. Bruce Moon

Why art?

Art Therapy primarily uses the right side of your brain, which is where trauma is held, allowing easier access to processing painful experience. “Different studies and research show that when we engage in art-making, it helps the neurological system relax. Brain chemical levels will decrease and bring about relaxation for many people, which also helps the nervous system calm down." - Margaret Carlock Russo, President of the AATA

What if I am already doing talk therapy?

This group can be done in conjunction with other forms of therapy. We value both and honor the ongoing process of healing you have already begun. Art therapy engages other parts of the brain and allows us to process things differently. “I could say things with color and shape that I couldn’t’ say any other way – things I had no words for…” – Margaret Naumburg

What are the benefits of art therapy?

The American Art Therapy Association says the benefits of art therapy include:

  • Development of self-esteem and self-awareness

  • Emotional resilience

  • Reduction and resolution of conflicts and distress

  • Beneficial for treating anxiety and depression, common symptoms of traumatic experience

What if my loss was a long time ago?
Whether your grief was last cycle or a decade ago, you are welcome to join us. The process of grief is not linear and sometimes when we thought we had moved forward us, grief returns to remind us of that which we have lost. All experiences of pregnancy loss are welcome.
