We are involved in teaching sessions with 4th year medical students at Edinburgh University. This is an extremely valuable insight into the experience of perinatal death for the medical students. Our operations manager and a parent take part in these sessions which the students find very informative and are always very moved by the parents' experiences.
We offer student midwives placements with SANDS Lothians as part of their training. This can prove beneficial as it allows students to gain experience in supporting bereaved parents and their families after they have experienced the death of their baby.
We are happy to meet with Adult Nursing Students for an overview of the services we provide whilst on placement within the community and have done so for a while now. Please do get in touch if you have any questions re placement.
