March is Pregnancy After Loss Awareness Month, and the Providers Are Our PALS Campaign is our 2019 initiative.
What’s included in the Providers Are Our PALS packet:
Treating the Mom Pregnant After a Loss PALS Pocket Card
Facts about Pregnancy After Loss Infographic
Tips for Healthcare Providers when Treating the Mom Experiencing Pregnancy After Loss (PAL)
How to talk to your healthcare provider about the Providers Are Our PALS packet:
Before you meet with your provider, download your provider packet and familiarize yourself with the documents. The welcome letter gives you some talking points that you can use with your provider.
Keep it simple when chatting with your provider. Let them know you have found PALS to be a helpful resource and that PALS is running a campaign for connecting with providers during Pregnancy After Loss Awareness Month.
If you don’t have an appointment scheduled during March, you can also drop off the packet or mail it. You can choose to just use the welcome letter included in the packet. Make sure to sign it! You could also add a personal note to your provider.
