Join us in Chicago at the historic Drake Hotel for the International Perinatal Bereavement Conference, May 12-15, 2021.

We invite you to attend this one-of-a-kind event, specially designed to bring together professionals and parents advocates in a relaxed and communal setting. The International Perinatal Bereavement Conference (IPBC) is the only international conference devoted solely to the understanding of perinatal bereavement. In addition, this year we are addressing the alarming rise in maternal death, maternal mental health and much more.

IPBC is committed to the model of evidence-based care that includes research, personal experience, and bereaved family narratives. The purpose of the International Perinatal Bereavement Conference is to engage in educational and networking opportunities for those who support bereaved families.

Participants will be able to: 

- Explore relational aspects of perinatal bereavement care.
- Describe innovative clinical and advocacy implications in caring for families when their baby dies.
- Develop skills for working within an interprofessional team when providing care for bereaved families.
- Describe principles and practice of self-care.
- Discuss transformation as applied to processes of grieving.
- Provide opportunities for relationship building among parent advocates, caregivers and researchers.
- Discuss ways of translating research findings into clinical practice.
- Identify potential causes of disparity in neonatal mortality rates among varying populations

We look forward to meeting you in Chicago!
