Print Friendly, PDF & Email

In addition to becoming certified by a globally respected organization in birth and bereavement doula support, SBD Doulas now can advance in their knowledge, skills and services to become SBD Chaplains.

SBD Chaplains are midwives of thanatology: honoring, empowering, respecting.

To help spread the word about this important addition to stillbirthday support, when we reach 50 comments below, we will run a giveaway drawing of 2 special double purple cord bracelets, bound by a silver heart charm from B’Earth Angel.  The double purple cord represents the two levels of training:

  • Birth & Bereavement Doula : support prior to birth, during birth, postpartum, and follow up care
  • SBD Chaplaincy : thanatological midwifery – serving in an active role during the farewell celebration, including preparing the baby for farewell viewing, funeral and burial or other farewell celebration of the family’s choosing

Just comment that you’d like these two bracelets, for yourself and for someone you love!  Reaching 50 comments is SO EASY to achieve – have your friends all comment too that you should win, and their comments count for you!

  1. My wish is that other families will get the chance to have these specially trained people at their sides during their most emotional state. My nurses were well trained; however, I felt like I was treated as what they are trained for in nursing school. Being a nurse myself I know there’s that part of your soul when there’s a job to do you just turn off your mind to what really is happening and get the job done. You’ll cry tears later when you realize your sort of out of body experience was reality. What really makes a caregiver is one who sits on that bedside cries tears with you when that’s all you can do. the night my daughter died, I was put into a “regular room” with that ugly card that features the leaf and teardrop on it outside. My nurse came in took my vitals then I never saw another soul again until I was discharged the next day. It was extremely lonely. I felt alienated. It pleases me to know there are others that are going to change this. I know I have had first hand training and I will never take someone’s grief for granted and I will cry with them. Thank you.

    My best girl and I both have Angel Babies. While it breaks my heart, I am greatful to have her, to have someone so close to me who understands. I wish this wasn’t the case, for either of us, but it is what it is, and I think my husband and I would be lost with her (and her husband).
