Aditi Loveridge (she/her) is a certified coach, mindfulness meditation teacher, writer, pregnancy loss advocate, owner of www.pregnancylosshealing.com and Founder of Pregnancy & Infant Loss Support Centre.

Aditi is honoured to help people connect to more healing options—so they can heal in their own way, on their own terms.
