Beyond Bea Study Day

Saturday 25 May 2019, 9am - 5pm

Bereavement study day provided by the charity Beyond Bea

Beyond Bea is a charity focusing on raising awareness about baby loss and bereavement and educating health care professionals in order to improve bereavement care.


We recognise that not all health professionals deliver the same high standard of care when diagnosing and supporting families during the loss of a baby. This is often due to lack of training and inexperience
