On the 25th of April, Fertifa's Céline Crawford (Head of People and Operations) and Sophie Witts (Midwife), will be joined by Oliva's Chief Clinical Officer, Dr. Sarah Bateup, to discuss how to support your employees through baby loss and miscarriage.

Using their combined expertise leading HR teams, working in fertility, women's health, and mental health, Céline, Sophie and Dr Sarah will discuss:

  • The emotional and mental health impact of pregnancy loss
  • How to create a supportive workplace culture, where things like pregnancy loss are acknowledged and discussed
