Infant & Pregnancy Loss Doula Scholarship Application

Home Hospice Association’s Infant & Pregnancy Loss Doula (IPLD) Certificate Program equips communities all over Canada with trained professionals able to assist people during one of the most painful times of their lives. The program covers preconception loss due to early and late miscarriage, medical and elective termination, prematurity, stillbirth and neonatal death, as well as the grief and other emotions that individuals and families experience during perinatal loss.

Thanks to the generous donations of those who recognize the need for this type of support and are committed to championing change, we are able to offer IPLD Scholarships to Certificate Program Candidates who are committed to building the Pre and Perinatal Hospice Program in their community.
