    Event description


    Sands NZ and VCA invites you to participate in our new Professionals' Series - online learning about many aspects of baby loss for anyone who interacts with or supports bereaved parents, families and whānau.

    The Series is made up of different topics each month, and everything is delivered online. The tickets you purchase on this page are for OCTOBER only. If you wish to purchase tickets for the four months from July to October - please go to You'll see the link to the whole series there.

    You will receive a link for an online platform where you can access the content (a presentation plus other videos, resources, links, articles).

    We also have discussion webinars for the October topics on a Thursday evening from 8:00-9:00pm. Most of the discussion webinars will be attended by bereaved parents/whānau so you will have a unique opportunity to hear their lived experience and to ask questions. We have used this format in our Student Series and we're told consistently that the discussion webinars are the most valuable part of the learning!
