Health Professionals

Bereaved parents participated in a discussion panel with the topic “When a baby dies” at the annual conference of the National Association of Perinatal Social Workers in Vancouver on May 7, 2015.

We are grateful for the opportunity to share our stories with health care professionals and we would like to thank the organizers of the conference for inviting parents to share their perspectives.

A summary of the panel discussion was compiled and published in the NAPSW Forum publication, Volume 34, Number 4, Autumn 2015. With permission from NAPSW we are publishing the relevant pages on this site.
