Pre-Registration for Perinatal Bereavement Training Workshop for Medical/Birth Professionals is open
Three Little Birds will be debuting our Perinatal Bereavement Training Workshop in the Spring/Summer of 2021. The primary objective of the Workshop is to provide understanding and empathy for perinatal loss families, by way of educating and empowering medical staff to provide families with the best care on the worst day of their lives. This workshop is split into two sections: Part 1: Education, Communication & Empathy and Part 2: Walking the Journey. Workshops begin with an introduction of the training staff, as well as an overview of Three Little Birds Perinatal. There will also be a background discussion on statistics and goals. The main workshop will cover the following topics:
Understanding the unique grief of pregnancy and infant loss
How to hold space, and effectively advocate, for families
Understanding the sacred bond between mother and baby
Cultural, religious, ethnic and personal diversity in death
How pregnancy and infant loss impacts a family's future, and the care they receive, can affect their healing
Understanding a patient's perspective of their experience, as well as its impact on her and caregivers, including symptomatic, intellectual, psycho-social and spiritual dimensions of loss
How to create a lifetime of memories in moments
Perinatal Bereavement Photography training; tips and tricks from a Professional (Bereavement) Photographer
Hands-on scenarios - Utilizing the information discussed in Part 1, hands on scenarios will be role-played to give attendees the opportunity to "experience", and understand how to handle, all possibilities.
