Types of Education

General Perinatal Education For Medical Professionals

Geared toward the medical community, the goal of these presentations is to improve the quality of care and response that families receive while experiencing perinatal loss. Covered topics include types of perinatal loss, grief, helpful communication, improving patient care, self-care, and a 15-minute Q&A session. To book a General Perinatal Education session, please use the Calendly schedule below.

Coping with Loss in the Workplace

Returning to work after infant or pregnancy loss can be extremely painful. While that pain cannot be taken away, employers and coworkers can make the transition back to work a little easier by knowing what to say, how to act, and what supports to offer. Covered topics include overview of pregnancy & infant loss, impacts of grief, what to say and what not to say to someone who has experienced loss, policies that support loss parents, resources, and Q&A. To discuss booking a Coping with Loss in the Workplace Education session, please email Forever Footprints founder, Kristyn von Rotz, at
