Photographs - Access our memory book which is filled with photographs provided to us to help educate, learn basic skills to create photographs for everlasting memories for families without the need for expensive equipment or photography knowledge.
3D Casting - learn the basic principles of creating casts to provide these to families.
I fully believe this day should be mandatory as part of our curriculum.
Thank you for letting me tell Mollie’s story. This is how I get to be a parent.
Everything was discussed so sensitively and with so much insight. Today has been invaluable and I will carry it with me throughout my career.
I have learnt more today about the impact of baby loss than in my 25 year career as a midwife.
Thought provoking and very much needed in this trust - and ALL trusts.
You have given me the courage I needed when caring for bereaved families.
Imagine how we would improve as a profession if every health profession undertook this course.
