Research Round up.
Dr Vicky Culling presented at the Gold Neonatal 2019 On-line Conference on providing care and support when a baby dies in the NICU. Her core message related to the fact that grief is about love and love never ends. Therefore, there is no time limit on how long one should grieve. Grief is also unique to every situation and to every affected person. We should be mindful to how we handle such situation and we should choose our words carefully. A quote by Brené Brown states that rarely a response makes something better – what makes something better is connection. The only things we should do in terms of support is to acknowledge, validate and connect. During her talk Dr Vicky Culling recommended the following links in relation to providing care and support when a baby dies in the NICU.
