Something that no parent-to-be wants to hear…”We can’t find a heartbeat”.

Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart. 

-  A.A.Milne

..and they say the smallest coffins are the heaviest!

A loss is a loss..

We (well most of us) work very hard to live a life of

“no judgement”
They say: “in order to walk in someone else’s shoes you first must take off your own”.

We are going to explore how we strive to live by an organizational culture that is defined by the concept that "A loss is a loss is a loss".  Working in our culture of end of life care means we recognize the uniqueness of grief much like our own fingerprint.  No one of us will grieve in the same way.  

 

October is Infant and Pregnancy Loss Awareness moth and what better time to honour those grieving a loved one they may never have met. Take a moment on October 16 in silence; in memoriam or join one of our vigil events in a Chapter near you.
