Eliza Strauss

Bereavement Midwife, Vic

Eliza Strauss is a specialist Bereavement Midwife who established a unique bereavement support program at a private maternity hospital in Melbourne. Eliza saw the need to better support families following the tragic losses of their babies, and for good quality staff education to assist health practitioners in providing bereaved parents with appropriately sensitive support.

Eliza was awarded the national “Excellence in Bereavement Care Award” by the Australian College of Midwives for her work in the area of perinatal loss in a maternity hospital setting. Eliza believes every family should receive best practice, quality bereavement care at every point in the painful trajectory of loss and grief.

In partnership with the Centre of Perinatal Excellence (COPE), Eliza educates midwives and front-line health professionals with online training “Perinatal Loss in Practice: What hospital staff Need to Know”.

The Mental Health Professionals’ Network (MHPN) respectfully acknowledges the Wurundjeri and the Boon Wurrung people of the Kulin nation, the Traditional Owners and Custodians of the land on which our office is situated. We also acknowledge Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
