Lorraine presented on infant loss at the First Babywearing in Canada Conference 2015.



Losing your child is one of the most heart-breaking things a parent can experience.  It happened to Lorraine 20 years ago and she still thinks of that child everyday.  Lorraine has also survived many miscarriages (8), and cervical cancer.  Yet, you can find a way to move through it.  Lorraine will talk directly on this very sensitive topic while drawing for her own personal experiences, as well as an expert in pre-natal and post-partum care.

This session is now available for sale, with a portion of the proceeds to go Aaron’s Butterfly Run Ottawa/Gatineau in support of Roger Neilson House. Rachel Samulack shares her experience of infant loss here.
