The Wishbone Foundation is filling a need that has gone under-served. There are several establishments providing support for families after they leave the hospital, but there is not an organization currently dedicated to providing the training and support for the labor and delivery teams at no cost to them.

Two Days of Bereavement Training

The two day training will incorporate specific cases, a parent panel, small group breakout sessions, and comprehensive bereavement skill training that is led by experienced bereavement nurses and doctors of psychology. We strive for every attendee to walk away with confidence and new skills to support grieving families.

“I have been a social worker for 20 years. I just finished the Wishbone Foundation’s bereavement training for infant loss and it is by far the best training on infant loss. Thank you for sharing all the families’ stories of loss, strength, and courage! You have impacted my work more than you will ever know. Bless you!”

“A sincere thank you to the Wishbone Foundation for an absolutely incredible and life changing conference. Really opened my eyes and fueled my passion for helping families during times of loss. What an incredibly meaningful and emotional 2 days!! This should be standard education for every L&D and NICU employee! Thank you so much!”
