Designing a special midwifery service for stillbirths
Webinar by midwife, PhD Dorte Hvidtjørn
At Aarhus University Hospital a small unit for perinatal loss was initiated in 2011.
The Unit is shielded from the labor- and maternity wards with crying babies and pregnant women.
The mother and her partner can stay at the Unit as long as they need.
The midwives at the Unit are specialized within grief and loss and practice self-management to a high degree.
Dorte Hvidtjørn will talk about
- The first ten years at the Unit for Perinatal Loss
- The importance of time, space and experience
- The importance of relationships and individualized care
