At a Loss: Working with Families Who Are Finding Their Way After Miscarriage, Stillbirth, or Infant Death
In honor of Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month, Then Comes Baby is pleased to host local therapist and author Dr. Donna Rothert, PhD for a thoughtful and practical talk aimed at providing insight into a topic that any perinatal professional can benefit from.
Dr. Rothert will also be sharing more about her recently published book, At A Loss: Finding Your Way After Miscarriage, Stillbirth, and Infant Loss. Centered around a set of 30 essays, it is inclusive of different ways of conception, different family configurations and different types of baby loss and — a rarity it this type of book — is not heteronormative. Dr. Rothert’s voice is approachable while she explores common themes, seeking ways to put words to individual stories while connecting them to the bigger story of their life.
Each perinatal professional has a small, but impactful, opportunity to provide client/patient-centered care. Participants in this Speaker Series event should walk away with:
- An understanding of provider comments and questions that are more or less helpful when speaking to someone who has experienced a perinatal loss — and the importance of being mindful of our words.
- A deeper understanding on the many different shapes and forms that perinatal loss can “look” like
- An examination of common themes, the ambiguity, and growth that can accompany perinatal loss
- Participation in group discussions and Q+A with Dr. Rothert
