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.


Dr. Stacey Bromberg, PhD | clinical psychologist with a specialty working with children and families dealing with grief and loss

Lori Adams, BSN, RNC-OB, C-EFM | perinatal nurse educator and lead instructor for Wishbone Foundation bereavement training

Dr. Jennifer Harned Adams, PhD | clinical psychologist with specialties in women’s reproductive health and healthcare provider burnout
