I totally have to take a FOUR HOUR class on perinatal bereavement, i.e. infant loss. Seriously? Can I be exempt? Not to be insensitive to the topic but I am freaking eight months pregnant! Do I have to sit there and listen to this for four hours?!?!?

It's bad enough that everyone seems to feel like it's appropriate to tell me stories about horrific deliveries that left their babies brain damaged or with cerebral palsy lately. I mean, what makes you think a pregnant woman wants to hear that?

Ugh..... :-(

It's a requirement for NICU and L&D nurses. I have already done plenty of training in this and unfortunately had plenty of experience in this with my patients, so you'd think I could get an exemption. Nope. :-(

The way you worded, it sounded like it was a requirement for pregnancy. I'm sorry. I hope it's not hard on you, although, given the subject matter, I teared up just thinking about it.

You should be exempt. How often do they have this class? Could you take it at a later time, if not offered at your hospital, maybe with another one close by after your baby arrives? Thinking of you.

I'll third that! I mean SERIOUSLY. That is just a crazy thing to ask of a pregnant woman. I accidentally read a book with a SIDS death in it when my son was a couple months old and I sobbed for hours. Not a good time! Have you asked if you can postpone it? Or is it some kind of licensing thing with a time limit?If you do truly have to go, sit in the back and hide some earphones under your hair or something so you don't have to listen!

OMG, that totally sucked today. They ended up saying there would maybe be a class in August, but that is new, and I they hadn't posted it yet. So, since I couldn't take on one maternity leave, I got it over with. There were only 6 of us in this session, so I couldn't hide, but did get up and leave every time they had a sad video. I watched a few, but the one playing "Amazing Grace" and showing pictures of this family that had an unexpected loss at term had me tearing up before I could even get to the door to leave. Ridiculous.
