Hospital Staff Resources

I have been a Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Photographer since 2021 and have been serving bereaved families since 2019. I have been passionate about photography for over 20 years.

We want to support hospitals as they support their bereaved families.

Each family’s hospital experience before, during, and after loss can truly affect how well a family can heal from their trauma. The people who interact with these families as they navigate their grief should have RTS training (or the like) and should be encouraged to attend the PLIDA conference at least once. Still, we know how quickly the turn-over rate is in nursing and especially in bereavement care, and training is not always possible. That’s why I wanted to create a go-to space at to serve the people who serve bereaved families most (and usually first) along their journey through grief.
