This Stillbirth Toolkit was created by the Partnership for Maternal and Child Health of Northern New Jersey, Central Jersey Family Health Consortium and Southern Perinatal Cooperative with support from the March of Dimes. The materials were designed to assist you, the health care provider, when caring for patients experiencing perinatal loss. Through the Partnership’s work providing support to bereaved families we have learned how vital thorough testing and clear, supportive communication both in the hospital and after discharge is to a family’s grief process.  It is our hope that these materials will be a useful resource for you and your staff in caring for patients during this difficult time.
