Pregnancy After Loss: A Parent’s Perspective is a continuation of the knowledge gained at Babyloss A Parent’s Perspective (though each day is equally valuable on their own). This study day helps you to understand how the death of a baby affects families in the years that follow the baby’s death. It gives an overview of grieving and how this may affect family planning and throughout pregnancy. Through parental story and experiences you will learn how subsequent pregnancy is challenging, and give consideration to different situations such as multiple losses, and babies requiring neonatal care.
