Pregnancy Loss and Infant Death Alliance

PLIDA is a leading organization in perinatal and neonatal bereavement care. Our focus is on education, advocacy, and networking for healthcare providers and parent advocates. We are dedicated to promoting the highest quality of evidence-based care for all families, considering perinatal bereavement care as an imperative rather than an option.

To fulfill our mission, we offer professional continuing education opportunities, establish position statements and practice guidelines, and provide a unified response to media and legislative issues. Additionally, we create a supportive network for professionals to connect, share questions, access resources, and gain valuable insights and support from their peers. Through these efforts, we strive to advance the field of perinatal and neonatal bereavement care and ensure consistent, compassionate support for families facing such challenges.
