If your client is or has lost their baby and you are unsure how to support them, I can come along side you during this infant loss 4difficult time and help you guide them through this time. I do not take over your role as doula, I will simply be present either physically or by phone so that you may draw from my knowledge and experience of supporting birth in any trimester and outcome.
