Medicine and me: Coping with losing a baby

Date: 2 June 2018
Venue:
Royal Society of Medicine, London

Physicians, surgeons and indeed all healthcare professionals continue to learn from and be inspired to greater efforts to improve care by hearing directly from patients.

The audience at this meeting will comprise of those coping with the loss of a baby, their families, carers and advocates, representing about 70% of those present; and clinicians and researchers representing no more than 30%. Clinicians will include doctors, specialist nurses and others involved in the treatment and care of those who have this condition.

This sensitive subject will be illustrated by the sharing of powerful renditions from mothers and fathers whose babies have died around or shortly after birth; with highlights of research developments and debate of controversial aspects of care giving a voice to ‘hidden’ mothers and fathers.
