Fertility Forum for Health Professionals

Suzanne Hurley


Join this Fertility Forum to create a supportive framework for your own needs when holding space for grief. This is a place to meet and to explore how we, as health professionals, carry the grief from the work that we do – be it infertility, miscarriage, termination support, birth trauma, neonatal death, mental illness, or unexpected events during the perinatal period.

I believe that by coming together in collaborative discussion about unmet needs and professional challenges, we can create a supportive framework in which to flourish together. Following my own experience of burn-out, I learnt firstly how to recognise my own unmet needs and then how to prioritise them. We can’t just keep on giving without knowing how to replenish, how to address what holds us up and how to arrive to our work with a sustainability and nourishment that not only benefits our patients, but also sustains us.

That is why I am offering this facilitated forum. What have you noticed about yourself in this work? What are your own support needs and how do you identify when you need to reach out?


This 4 week Fertility Forum is designed for all health professionals, in particular those counsellors, psychologists, birth workers, naturopaths, acupuncturists, herbalists, nurses, doctors, pastoral care workers, social workers and any supporting practitioners who are integral to the team supporting clients with grief stories from reproductive losses.

In these weekly forums, we will explore themes that arose in my recently presented Seminar Series – Responding to Reproductive Loss & Grief. Prior attendance to this seminar series is certainly beneficial, but not a prerequisite for joining this forum.

Read more about the details for this event, register your spot and I look forward to seeing you there.
