Dr. Jane Warland. From one bereaved mum and writer to another.

From one bereaved mum and writer to another.

 Dr. Jane Warland.

Jane is a registered midwife and senior academic at the School of Nursing and Midwifery at the University of South Australia. Since suffering the unexplained term stillbirth of her daughter Emma in 1993, she has been a passionate researcher into preventative and modifiable risk factors for stillbirth as well as promoting public and maternity care provider awareness of stillbirth.

When we experience the death of a baby, we are reminded of the realities of life and often our innocence and naiveté are gone. This awareness can affect future pregnancies and the way we parent our living and/or subsequent children. Being pregnant again can be a very anxious and stressful time. The experience of this immense loss can shadow a subsequent pregnancy and also impact on the way we parent. During this session Jane will share her experiences and invite parents to ask questions and share their experiences.
