Perinatal bereavement

Death of the baby and perinatal bereavement

Perinatal bereavement is a harsh reality that is not well-known and therefore often poorly understand.

CHU Sainte-Justine would like to support parents and their loved ones who are affected by pregnancy or infant loss.

Revenir les bras vides [Returning with Empty Arms] is a four-part documentary series that records the stories of parents who have lived through perinatal bereavement and the stories of their loved ones. This series explores many different themes and offers greater insight into the subject, which is still taboo and shrouded in silence. Specialists share their thoughts by answering the many questions raised when a baby’s life is cut so short.

The team at St-Justine made these to help and guide parents and their loved ones through this difficult period of mourning.

We would like to express our gratitude to all the people who contribute to these video. Specials thanks to the parents for sharing their experience. Thanks to their families and friends who  bear witness this tragedy and finally thanks to Mélanie Gagné who animated these conversations with lots of kindness and sensibility
