The coast offers the expansiveness that sometimes words cannot describe for the grief of losing a baby.
1) Intersectional support for those who have experienced baby loss and are currently or aspire to be working in the perinatal health space, 2) Co-creation of a loss community focused on improving care for parents experiencing loss
Who is this for?
We are inviting people who:
We are calling to this space: parents who are global majority, multicultural, queer, trans, disabled, birthing and nonbirthing parents, adoptive, surrogate, and parenting solo. We welcome you.
Covid-19 vaccinations will be required for all attendees. Masks will be required indoors.
Attendees will be served breakfast, lunch, and snacks. Attendance includes facilitated rituals, discussions, and individual processing and relaxation options. This will be a daytime-only retreat so no accommodation or transport is included.
Our desire is to make this offering accessible to all, regardless of financial status. This is a suggested donation event, with no one turned away from lack of funds.
Given the sensitivity of this topic, we are offering childcare stipends to keep this an adults-only space.
A focus of the retreat will be brainstorming of how we can infuse grief into action to improve systems for parents. If you are currently a student, volunteer, professional, or educator – or aspire to be – in any field related to pregnancy, birth, postpartum, and loss, we’d love to work alongside you to discuss changes that can be made to perinatal care systems.
