#BLAW2021 Day 4-We are thinking about those on the frontline and how they look after families and provide care and support.
Today we are joined in the studio by Sariah a Bereavement Midwife for the NHS.
Sariah is a dedicated and hardworking midwife who practices clinically and supports parents during the most devastating times. Before, during and after the loss of a baby or babies.
Sariah champions the work that OWF offer within the trust and signposts families that need support to a range of charities, groups and services as well as to us here at Oscars Wish Foundation.
During our video podcast we chat about-
*The role of a Bereavement Midwife- what does your role involve?
*Working with families- How do you do this and what support do you provide to parents?
*What support is there for you and the team after working so closely with trauma and loss- what support is there for you working on the frontline?
*What things would really help support your role further? What do you need?
