A counselor who deals with anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder, and/or womens'/family issues (I can't find a better way to express this right now), might be a good way to go. Many counselors who deal with baby or neonatal loss, are also treating women who have not lost a baby, but had difficult pregnancies, or babies in the Nicu, or children who are sick, or similar. There is a variety of issues, such a therapist will counsel. In my view, it is most important that you like and trust your therapist, and their way of counseling you.
