Loss in a Multiple Pregnancy. A Guide for Staff … By Niamh Connolly

Our SOFT Member Niamh Connolly has launched a new online booklet called Loss in a Multiple Pregnancy: A Guide for Staff. Over the last two decades, the number of multiple births has increased dramatically and healthcare professionals are encountering loss in multiple births much more often. Doctors, paediatricians, midwives, allied health professionals, healthcare assistants, chaplains and counsellors and other staff who come in contact with bereaved parents require guidance on how to provide sensitive and informed care when there is loss in a multiple pregnancy. This booklet aims to offer this guidance for all.
