There is no mandated training for doctors, nurses, sonographers, etc. for perinatal palliative care, leaving most health care workers feeling uncomfortable and unequipped to provide quality bereavement care. The Sweeney Center for Perinatal Health is designed to allow access to perinatal palliative care, one-on-one & family counseling as well as support groups, regardless of their ability to pay.
Community education is incorporated through conferences & specialized training programs to those who care for these special babies & their parents, and encourage certification for this type of specialized care for all healthcare workers that work with this population.
A CPLC (Certified in Perinatal Loss Care) certification is available through HPCC (Hospice and Palliative Credentialing Center).
