Losing a baby before or shortly after birth can be devastating for parents. That is why Women’s Hospital, the University of North Carolina-Greensboro School of Nursing and Heartstrings Pregnancy & Infant Loss Support Group are holding the “Caring for Families Experiencing Fetal and Infant Loss” conference. The program is designed for health professionals, clergy and other community members who care for or counsel those experiencing loss during the months before or right after childbirth.
The class costs $50 for participants and will be held in the Women’s Education Center of the hospital on Saturday, March 16, from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Class participants will be able to:
- Consider the possible ranges of grief reactions when caring for families who have experienced perinatal loss.
