Description

Working with parents who lose a baby is hard and heartbreaking. You need skills and compassion to support them through their grief. Join us for the Charlotte Perinatal Bereavement Conference, an event in partnership with Gemma's Hope, a nonprofit that helps families after perinatal loss.

You will learn from experts and peers how to:

  • Communicate and support parents effectively and empathetically.
  • Provide parents with appropriate resources after loss.
  • Understand the fears and decisions parents face about their baby's last moments and/or body.
    By attending the conference, you will make a difference in the lives of those you serve.
