Description

Background: Perinatal Hospice is a relatively new component of pediatric palliative care, which supports families who are expecting the birth of a child with life-threatening or life-limiting condition. Parents in this situation have unique needs and often experience emotional isolation following their child's loss. This study explores the characteristics of babies and families referred for perinatal hospice, and provides descriptive analysis of diagnosis, interventions and outcomes.
