Perinatal hospice

What is a perinatal hospice?

A perinatal hospice is not a place. It is much more the way of thinking of many specialists who prioritize the welfare of parents and their child at each stage of pregnancy, childbirth and after birth – no matter the condition of the little human we are awaiting.

Nobody is planning a sick child. Each abnormality or even suspicion of those during pregnancy causes fear and uncertainty.

The perinatal hospice team is at the disposal of parents who need support and help, regardless of the week of pregnancy or how serious the diagnosis is, or how difficult the obstetrician’s suspicions are. We respect every decision of parents and we stand by their side if they want us to.

How does a perinatal hospice work?

The hospice is made of specialists in medicine, psychology and theology. Each of them, within their specialty, tries to get familiar the needs of the mother, the child and the family expecting a new member. We research, refine the diagnosis as much as possible, choose the place of delivery, prepare the parents and the delivery ward team, help rearrange the world and manage emotions, and we talk to specialists. We do all of this to build the most optimal care plan that meets the needs of both the newborn and his loved ones.

Our help is free and co-financed by the National Health Fund (NFZ).

Even if a time comes when you can’t cure someone, you can always take care of them…
