Pregnancy Loss and Bereavement
BayCare provides a comprehensive support program for women and their families who suffer a loss at any stage of pregnancy. Empathetic team members understand the emotional upheaval and grief during what is expected to be a joyful time and respect each family's unique needs.
Pregnancy Loss Program coordinators have received specialist training and education from the nationally recognized Bereavement Services organization and are prepared to provide ongoing support through telephone calls, monthly support group sessions and annual events such as a "Walk to Remember" and a "Candlelight Remembrance Service."
Pastoral Care assists Pregnancy Loss with patients' emotional and spiritual care including requests for prayers and blessing/baptism of the baby after delivery.
