Grief and bereavement counseling

We understand how painful and difficult it can be to have a critically ill child. That’s why Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin offers programs to help patients and families cope with the unthinkable.

Infant Death Center

The Infant Death Center offers support for anyone affected by the sudden and unexpected death of an infant up to one year of age. The program is administered through Children's Health Alliance of Wisconsin, and works with other professionals in outreach, education and other programs to ensure that grieving families are provided the support and resources they need.

Palliative care

Palliative care is more than just caring for dying children. It treats the pain, symptoms and stress of children and families facing complex or life-threatening conditions, so they can remain comfortable at any stage of illness. We stay with families every step of the way to ensure their child is getting the care he or she deserves.

Spiritual care

We understand that a visit to the hospital can be very stressful for families. Our experienced spiritual care staff offers guidance in all faiths, as well as emotional support to your child, to you as a parent, and to other members of your family who are affected by your child's illness.
