In early 2007 members of Healthy Birth Day began meeting with administrators and nurses from Iowa Health Systems. We shared our stories and our interest in helping others who experience a tragic loss such as ours. After months of planning we developed a brochure for the Parent-to-Parent network to be given to bereaved families during their hospital stay. In addition, we planned and delivered in-service presentations to all of the Iowa Health System Mother/Baby nurses during the summer of 2007. During these in-services we shared our stories, gave suggestions on how hospital caregivers can better take care of bereaved families, and shared the Parent-to-Parent brochure and program information. It is our hope that through these direct caregivers we will be able to reach out to bereaved families who need us.
