Description

Background: The loss of a child in the first hours or days of life is a profoundly distressing event for parents. Provision of appropriate psycho-social care for bereaved parents is critical. Current perinatal and neonatal palliative care guidelines recommend supporting parents to create memories with their baby. However, little is currently known about the impact of these activities on parents' experience of loss.
