Supporting families who experience pregnancy and infant loss – Brisbane
This one-day workshop introduces health professionals to an understanding of perinatal and infant loss that will assist you to develop a compassionate and best practice approach in how to support bereaved parents within your practice.
We will explore across the spectrum of pregnancy loss in how to provide both practical and psychological care for parents and their families who face early pregnancy loss, late term miscarriage, termination of pregnancy, an unexpected diagnosis in pregnancy, stillbirth, neonatal death, perinatal palliative care and pregnancy after loss, and the impact this can have on families and caregivers at the time of their loss, and throughout their lives.
This workshop will provide you with strategies to support parents, grandparents, children and others on what can be a difficult journey, as well as giving you an overview to a range of local and National resources and support services that can equip and support you and the families you work with.
Having been through her own journey of loss, as well as supporting many families and health professionals over her career beginning in 2001, you will be facilitated by the Director of the Australian Perinatal Loss Professionals Network – Robyn McKinnon, who brings her collective wisdom of knowledge, research, case studies and personal stories aimed to encourage, challenge and inspire you in providing compassionate care for bereaved families and their precious babies.
This workshop is designed for all professionals who come in to contact with families during pregnancy from preconception through to birth, as well as those who provide care after birth or in a subsequent pregnancy, including Midwives, Nurses, GP’s, Obstetricians, Emergency Medicine Practitioners, Mental Health Professionals, Sonographers, Pathologists, Funeral Services, Chaplains, First Responders and students across all disciplines.
