Pregnancy Loss and the Death of a Baby: Guidlines for Professionals
This book is designed to guide and inform the practice of individual professionals and the policies, procedures and standards of NHS Trusts in relation to the care of parents following the loss of their baby. It sets standards for care and explains the rationale that supports those standards.
This well-known reference for all healthcare professionals in contact with parents who lose a baby has been completely updated to reflect the latest research in the field, and incorporates new policy from the Department of Health. It covers every aspect of care and the legal, ethical and practical issues surrounding the loss. Checklists, suggested further reading and a useful list of support organisations complete this essential guide to good practice.
