For Practitioners

Sharing knowledge and best practice - supporting rainbow parents with the best possible care.

Many professionals have the privilege of supporting parents in pregnancies following loss. Increasingly parents are telling their stories, sharing the hopes and challenges of their pregnancies and professionals are listening. There is a growing understanding of the unique needs of rainbow parents and a developing commitment amongst midwives, obstetricians, GPs, health visitors, counsellors and other practitioners to offer care tailored to understand and meet these needs.

Rainbow Antenatal seeks to offer a space and gathering point for professionals and practitioners who are committed to offering rainbow parents the best possible care.

We would love to hear from you if you are a healthcare professional or practitioner supporting rainbow parents. Use the 'Contact' tab to get in touch and let us know if you would like to be added to our list of "More Support" offered to rainbow parents or receive our Rainbow Antenatal newsletter.
