Health care professionals can have a positive influence on how families experience their care when a baby dies. No level of care can take away the pain families feel but high quality care can help families process their grief and begin to learn to live without their much-loved baby.
High quality bereavement care involves
- A recognition of parenthood
- Sensitive and effective communication
- Enabling informed choice
- Grief & trauma awareness
- Support for staff
- The National Bereavement Care Pathway
