My guest is Kansas City childbirth educator and birth attendant (doula), Adelheid Faith, she provides Pregnancy, labor, and postpartum support serving most every kind of birth including home, hospital, stllbirth/fetal demise, crisis, adoption and high risk births. On tonigt's show we will be discussing, stillbirth, and fetal demise. These unexpected outcomes are rare but do happen. Have you been faced with a loss? Do you know someone who has. What do you say, and more importantly what do you not say to a woman (family) who has experienced or will experience this overwhelming fact of life? We will discuss different types of loss and the universal hopelessness that surrounds this topic. It will be hard but I am glad we are discussing this.
It's important for doulas and care providers to know what to do and say and advise.
