Pregnancy and Infant Loss (PAIL) Network IN-PERSON Compassionate Care Workshop

Join us for a FREE one day workshop focused around providing compassionate care to bereaved parents during the loss of their pregnancy or death of their infant.

This educational session covers many topics, including; attachment, statistics, grief, loss experience (miscarriage, stillbirth, infant death, loss of a multiple), memory making, what to say/what not to say, pregnancy after loss, and caring for the caregiver. We also invite a panel of family members to answer questions about their lived experience with early pregnancy loss, and what it means to receive compassionate care. Participants leave with ideas for providing compassionate supports and resources, as well as practical skills, tools, and techniques to provide skilled care to grieving parents and families.
