Perinatal Palliative Care website launched in Australia

Categories: Care.

The Perinatal Palliative Care website, which can be accessed at  was launched at the Catholic Health Australia national conference. The website was developed as a collaboration of hospitals that provide perinatal palliative care services and supported by Catholic Health Australia.

Through the website parents who have made the decision to continue with a pregnancy despite a palliative diagnosis share the joys and sorrows that the experience created for them. Clinicians and genetic counsellors, bereavement counsellors and pastoral care workers also offer their perspective on how families deal with such a difficult situation. 

The website aims to give families information about a range of conditions, advice on where they can find help and also to share stories of people who lived through the experience and are thankful for what has been described as a bittersweet journey.
