The Story Behind Loving with Grace

WellSpan’s perinatal palliative care program, Loving with Grace, was developed by two obstetric nurses who saw a need to provide compassion and support for families dealing with a poor outcome or fatal diagnosis in their pregnancy and choose to carry their baby.

They have organized a multidisciplinary team of experts to provide advocacy and guidance based on each individual’s situation. It is a program that came from the heart to help families in a time of need and let families know they are not alone.
