    00:01 So let's review.

    00:03 Perinatal loss refers to the death of an infant due to miscarriage, stillbirth, or neonatal death.

    00:11 Remember, that all members of the family are affected by perinatal loss.

    00:16 That's grandparents, siblings, friends.

    00:19 Understanding the theory behind grief and loss can help prepare the nurse to support the family.

    00:26 Remember, there are different types of grief.

    00:28 Nurses should prepare the family for how the baby will look when the baby is born.

    00:33 Parents should also be encouraged to see and hold the baby, especially within the first 30 minutes after the birth.

    00:42 The nurse's role is also to help the family to create rituals that will honor the baby and create memories.

    00:50 And finally, the nurse should also and always in every case, take care to practice self-care to avoid compassion fatigue. That's all.
