Reproductive Grief Care Certification in your Clinic or Center
Reproductive Grief Care Certification suits those seeking to provide the highest level of care. With training and practical resources for your entire team, it equips you to create an environment where men and women feel safe to disclose their reproductive history, and to support them in the midst of, or after, a loss. It also positions your organization as a center of excellence offering a “gold standard” of reproductive grief care in your community. Life Perspectives’ Reproductive Grief Care training is specifically geared toward pregnancy centers and pregnancy health clinics. Our training materials give you and your organization evidence-based, compassion-first approaches to reproductive grief and loss care.
“Life Perspectives’ training and resources are a must for pregnancy centers wishing to provide the highest level of care for clients impacted by reproductive loss.” Peggy Hartshorn, Heartbeat International Board Chair
