Abstract: This article aims to explore Hong Kong-based midwives’ attitudes towards perinatal bereavement care and identify their required support and bereavement care training needs. It is based on a study of 93 certified midwives working in an obstetrics and gynaecology unit in one of Hong Kong Island’s largest public hospitals. Data were collected through a structured self-administrated questionnaire. The study measured: midwives’ attitudes towards perinatal bereavement support; required support and bereavement care training needs. The main findings were that the majority of this study’s sample held a positive attitude towards bereavement care and there was a significant difference in attitudes towards perinatal bereavement support in terms of demographics, practical experiences and training factors.
