Description

events: a perinatal loss. Although grief processes have some common aspects, grief over a child can be especially intense, and those grieving such a loss have unique needs. One of the things that nurses can do to assist families in these situations is to assist them by creating memories of their child to help ease perinatal grief. This article describes the Precious Prints Project, a perinatal memory-making program designed to comfort families grieving the loss of a child. We discuss the development and implementation of this project, explore the literature, and show the strategies used to address the challenges encountered.
