Jenni describes her life’s work learning from parents who have experienced the tragedy of their baby’s death, whether before, at or soon after birth.
In this episode, Jenni explains how, through her career in the NHS and having founded the Child Bereavement Trust (now CBUK), she has learned how to support parents and children when a baby has died.
Jenni shares how she has helped parents and enabled them to understand their grief and have a continuing bond with their baby as they move on with life.
