Our commitment to providing midwives and other health professionals with the opportunity for bereavement training is an absolute core part of our ongoing strategy. This is an immensely challenging situation for any midwife or health professional to find themselves in.
We hope that if you’ve attended one of our training courses, you've found that it has given you a useful framework into some positive methods for handling the situation, some coping strategies for yourself, and just perhaps an insight into some things that might seem positive, but perhaps aren’t!
We are really pleased that Harrogate now has a dedicated bereavement midwife, and we truly believe this will give a vital support structure to Harrogate’s health professionals when dealing with baby loss.
Please remember to be kind to yourselves as well, whilst this is the most traumatic situation imaginable for parents, it is hugely emotionally challenging for professionals as well. If you feel you would benefit from reaching out to us to discuss challenges or your emotions, then please feel absolutely free to do so, we are here for you too.
If there’s anything you think yourself and your colleagues would benefit from in this area, please let us know and we will do our utmost to facilitate it. If you haven’t had the opportunity to attend one of our courses and are keen to do so, please get in touch.
