I think it has been invaluable for me. There was a lot of information I didn’t know, that as a supporter of bereaved parents I should know. I feel a lot more confident in my knowledge and ability to be an advocate for bereaved parents.

Thanks very much for the workshop today. It provided a really rich mix of heartfelt stories, useful ideas and information, and great networking. It was great to have the mixture of professionals there to be able to acknowledge the interest from within the community and share different aspects of the healing/grief journey from the different perspectives. I left feeling very full, moved and inspired!

This course has been fabulously worthwhile. I’ve found the Ruzuku platform very accessible and easy to use, and I’ve liked the way the course has been self-paced. I also liked the balance between the PowerPoints, your personal reflections, and the readings and links.


There are few resources for parents who face the heartbreak of an unexpected diagnosis in pregnancy.

Vicki Culling has compiled a book of stories from parents and contributions from health professionals called Holding On & Letting Go: Facing an Unexpected Diagnosis in Pregnancy. The book contains six contributions from health and caring professionals, seven stories from parents who continued their pregnancy after an unexpected diagnosis and seven stories from parents who induced/terminated the pregnancy.
