Type of scholarship: Midwife Training, Doula Training, Other
What is included in scholarship: Families experiencing a perinatal loss deserve respectful, compassionate, skilled care from the trusted companions invited into the birth space. To be truly educated about birth, we caregivers must be educated about how to lovingly handle the range of possible outcomes of birth. Perinatal bereavement training helps to deepen the doula/midwife/nurse’s level of compassion and to expand bereavement skills so clients experiencing a perinatal loss are served in the most compassionate, competent manner possible. The perinatal time is precious as it cannot be recreated. It is the foundation on which the family’s future healing is built and careful, empathetic care during the time of a loss can positively influence the way the family eventually heals and integrates their loss into their life.

Hearthside Perinatal Bereavement Care is dedicated to serving the families suffering loss by serving the birth professionals who work with pregnant women. We are passionate about providing perinatal bereavement education and experiences to professionals of all kinds so every family has access to a trained perinatal bereavement companion who is appropriate to their particular need.

Recognizing that black babies die at nearly 2.5 times the rate of white children in the United States, Hearthside is particularly passionate about increasing the number of companions of color available to serve these families in need. To this end, Hearthside will offer a full scholarship to our webinar series to TWO doulas/midwives of color during each training. This means there are six opportunities a year for doulas/midwives of color to receive scholarships for bereavement training with which to serve their communities.
