WHAT IS PLIDA?
PLIDA stands for the Pregnancy Loss and Infant Death Alliance. PLIDA is an alliance of professional groups, institutions, and individuals who provide care and support to families who experience a perinatal loss. Our tagline, “supporting those who support bereaved families” represents our mission to be a central source of support for professional caregivers.
We express our mission through professional continuing education, the establishment of position statements and practice guidelines, unified response to issues in the media or legislation, and by creating a network for professionals to share questions, resources, insight and support.
Pregnancy Loss and Infant Death Alliance Approved for a $50,000 Engagement Award by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI). As part of the award 24 scholarships will be available to professionals, parent advocates, and researchers wishing to attend the conference.
