The Serving Unique Families Seminar is the first phase to implementing the Unique Families Program. The “Unique Families” Program utilizes an established and tested curriculum to train hospital professionals in providing neutral, compassionate care to those facing unplanned pregnancy. The training is designed to increase hospital staff awareness of their own personal perceptions and biases regarding unique families and their complex situations, so they are able to serve patients in an objective, non-biased manner. It is also designed to improve hospital staff sensitivity, understanding, and skills necessary to handle the intricate emotional and logistical needs of unique families throughout pregnancy, delivery, and post-delivery.
Following the training, hospital professionals feel confident, educated, and empowered to serve their patients while being sensitive to the logistical and emotional complexity of unplanned pregnancy.
