Supporting Families in Grief
Join us for this special opportunity to prepare ourselves and all involved when the dreams of a new baby turn to heartbreak. The class will be held in a grounded and safe classroom space, with time for honoring our own experiences and those families who have shown us the way.
In this workshop we will focus on:
- the different types of perinatal loss
- understanding and skills for doulas to support families during miscarriage, stillbirth, or neonatal death – whether known in advance or unexpected
- the many forms of grief, and the grief process
- postpartum support for families who have had an unexpected outcome
- accessing support from medical staff and community resources
- cultural considerations when dealing with perinatal loss
- nurturing ourselves, and how to balance our sadness with our support.
