Infant & Child Deathcare with Toula Saratsis May 2023 Webinar
Toula is a Certified End-of-Life Doula that specializes in perinatal and pediatric palliative care, end-of-life, and after death care support. She was called to this work in 2016 after her daughter Angelica’s anticipated passing from a life limiting condition at nearly seven years old. Her work and service to others is rooted in advocacy that parallels activism through Community Death Care Education.
The collective goal with mainstream systems is to impact cultural change in how to raise awareness of connection, understanding, and options for children and their circles of care.
The unique needs of this population takes into consideration normalizing and validating experiences that others may have difficulty connecting with. This teaching will present an introduction to this work, community connections, and family stories.

NHFA Community Conversation on Unpausing Free video from our May 2023 Event
The NHFA Is officially unpaused! Watch our Community Conversation on Unpausing, which took place Friday, May 12th, 2023. In this conversation, we reflect on what we've done during the pause and discuss where we plan to go from here.
Background: In the summer of 2021, the NHFA board decided that we needed to hit pause in order to break down over a decade's worth of an institutional vision that had not interrogated the “isms” inherent in our organization: notably racism, anti-trans bias, classism, and ableism. Since hitting pause, we've dedicated our time to reviewing, revising, and continuing to learn -- making sure that that everything the NHFA offers aligns with our belief that community-led deathcare is truly for everyone, without exception.
