Loss of a Baby in Multiple Pregnancy: Supporting Grieving Parents

We have produced a 4-hour eLearning course aimed at health care professionals but may also be of interest to families and friends.

If you work for the NHS or allied services, then you can access this course for free. If you do not work for the NHS you can still access the course for free but only for 2 weeks. This should be enough time to complete the course, but for those who want permanent access you can upgrade for a small fee.


Give real support to bereaved parents after pregnancy or neonatal loss

Pregnancy loss and neonatal death are always devastating. When they occur in a multiple pregnancy, parents can be especially overwhelmed by the complex cluster of feelings that is evoked.

This course by The Butterfly Project will provide in-depth guidance into what parents are going through, how to provide bereavement support, and how to celebrate each life in a multiple pregnancy.

Gain insight into experiences following multiple pregnancy loss

On this course, you’ll get to explore the unique parental experiences of reproductive loss in a multiple pregnancy and the key challenges that arise in hospital wards and after discharge.

 Unpack bereavement support fundamentals for every stage

The learning materials and guidelines in this course were developed in partnership with parents, so you can trust their effectiveness.

From dealing with the immediate aftermath of the loss to encouraging parents to create memories of the life they’re mourning, you’ll feel more confident in every clinical setting.
