Bereavement, Resources, Infant Loss, Death, Grief, Encouragement and Support
The CHI Health St. Elizabeth BRIDGES Program is a bereavement support system for families who experience a pregnancy loss through miscarriage, ectopic (tubal) pregnancy, stillbirth or newborn death.
We believe that mourning the loss of a baby (no matter what the gestational age) is difficult but important work. Our mission is to provide sensitive care, information about grief and empathetic support and encouragement on a one-to-one basis.
Our BRIDGES program includes:
BRIDGES grief supporters are Registered Nurses who have received additional education through Resolve Through Sharing (RTS) Bereavement Services. They are available to listen, offer support, encouragement and consolation. There is no charge for our BRIDGES program. For more information, call (402) 219-7065.
Perinatal Palliative Care & Hospice Program
Embrace: Every Moment Brief, Remembered Always, Cherished Eternally
The CHI Health St. Elizabeth EMBRACE program is a support system for families who are facing the knowledge that their unborn baby has a life-limiting diagnosis.
The EMBRACE team consists of doctors, nurses, social workers and pastoral care ministers who strive to address the physical, spiritual and emotional needs of the family when they receive this life-changing information.
We recognize that every moment a family spends with their baby is precious. We desire to create a sacred and safe environment where a family can give birth and honor the life of their child even though the time may be brief.
For more information, please contact the EMBRACE Coordinator at (402) 219-7065.
