Pregnancy loss historically has been over looked by community support systems.  There have been many improvements within the health care systems in offering ways to support people who have experienced a pregnancy loss.  However, people still routinely hear statements that are harmful to grieving people.  This workshop will explore the pregnancy loss grief process: including memory making, support groups, and developing community support to help people once they leave the hospital.  Exploring hospital supports will include ritual and memory making supports. Whereas, exploring community supports will focus on what to offer people once they leave the hospital setting includes: developing donations to assist future grieving families, support groups, and remembrance walks.  It takes a community to help a family recover from pregnancy loss.
Learning Objectives
  • Exploring different ways to support people who have experienced a pregnancy loss.
  • Developing community supports to assist with pregnancy loss.
  • Creating healing relationships with people in all phase of pregnancy loss.

How It Works
To participate, all that is needed is a computer with Internet access and speakers, as the presentation audio and visuals are "webcast." Our webinars are priced per computer terminal, not per participant. That means you can invite as many colleagues to join you as can fit in your conference room or cluster around your computer. As a participant, you will be able to interact with the presenters, who will ask questions of the audience and answer questions posed by participants.
System Requirements
• As a best practice, we highly recommend an Ethernet connected computer for best connectivity and listening experience. You may experience some buffering of audio on lower bandwidth wireless connections.
• Internet Browsers:  Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 or later, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, or Windows Edge browser.
• Stable Internet Connection, DSL or above:  100kbps for video transmission, 300kbps for screen sharing and remote control, 500kbps to ensure fluidity of all services.
• Operating System: Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Mac OS X v10.4 or higher, Linux, Solaris.
• Adobe Flash Player 13.0 or newer:
• Computer Speakers
The link below will test your system to make sure you are running the most recent version of Adobe Flash Player and to make sure it is not being blocked by your network.
The "Connectivity" line should have a green check mark. If it does not please contact your network administrator to allow TelSpanWeb access to port RTMPE 1935. This will allow your Adobe Flash Player to run properly through TelSpanWeb. "Application Sharing" applies only to presenters, so if you see a red "X," that's OK.
If you have any further questions or concerns, or if you do not have computer speakers, please contact APC at for assistance.
You will receive an e-mail confirmation upon completion of the online registration and payment process. Instructions for logging into the webinar will be e-mailed to all participants two business days before the event.
