If taking care of a family that has or is about to have a baby born still makes you uncomfortable you, we understand. 

Being the support person to a bereaved family is a huge responsibility that we bear as L&D nurses and birth workers. Our education in this field is lacking and this 4 hour class was created to help you take a deep breath and feel prepared to support these families. 

You will hear real stories, learn tips to build rapport, what to say, how to give baths, do certain mementos and how to take care of yourself. 

Class includes: 19 modules and a custom 44 page workbook.

This class was designed for Labor and Delivery nurses but any person can take and learn from it. 

At the end of this course it is expected that the student can:

  1. List 3 causes of fetal death. 
  2. Describe the states of grief and when they happen.
  3. Create a plan of nursing interventions that should be done for this family.

This class is a portion of the Bundle Birth Nurse Mentorship program and you may hear the instructors mention the program. If you want to know more about that program, click here.

*6 CEs from the California BRN will be awarded upon completion of this class. Class access expires 365 days from purchase.

Director of Nursing, BSN, PHN, RNC-OB, C-EFM Justine has made it her goal to empower nurses so they see how big of a role they play in the birth room. She wants every single nurse she encounters to understand that they matter and what they do matters.

This module was the reason I signed up for mentorship. I had a traumatic case back in Jan 202, joined mentorship in April; and then experienced a miscarriage in June 2021. This module was so helpful in my healing as well as being able to reflect and process the cases Ive been apart of. Thank you for this meaningful module. I really enjoyed the caring for ourselves discussion. How does an OB nurse work through our own personal pregnancy loss while caring for our patients? This was something I had been struggling with and through this heart wrenching module I have found some things that I have identified

This class is something that I really needed to learn about and I am very thankful for it.
