Adult, Pediatric and Perinatal Palliative Care

The comprehensive, compassionate palliative care delivered through Notre Dame At Home aims to help patients and families as they endure the difficulties and challenges associated with serious illnesses, life-limiting, and terminal illnesses.


Many couples of childbearing years will experience a perinatal loss. The loss of a baby, whether sudden or expected, can be overwhelming and can leave a family emotionally, physically, and spiritually drained.

The Notre Dame Perinatal Palliative Care Program, which is part of Notre Dame Pedi Pals, assists the needs of a family whose lives have been touched by the tragic death of a baby through pregnancy loss, stillbirth, or death during the first few months of life. Bereaved parents can find comfort in the presence of our interdisciplinary team and approach to help cope with this devastating loss.


The Notre Dame Perinatal Palliative Care Program team is made up of a team of professionals including social workers, bereavement counselors, nurses, child life specialists (for siblings), spiritual care, and music, massage, and art therapists. Their mission is to support and guide families in multiple ways with an understanding that cultural, religious, and family diversity affect how each person copes with feelings of grief and mourning.
