Nurturing the Nurse Caring for Perinatal Loss

The unexpected loss of a pregnancy is painful experience for all those involved. As a healthcare professional, it is not enough to solely focus on physical care. Being equipped with strategies to address emotional needs during this vulnerable time is equally important. Recognizing and attending to the emotional well-being of patients, parents and families can greatly enhance the overall quality of care provided. Clinicians should acknowledge that it is not within their power to prevent every adverse event or traumatic experience. However, by acknowledging this limitation, clinicians can focus on developing strategies to cope with and mitigate the effects of such events. It is vital for clinicians to understand that they should not bear the burden of these traumatic events in an unhealthy manner throughout their careers.

Join us for a 45-minute webinar with experts from AWHONN and HealthStream to gain valuable resources for coping with perinatal loss.
