  Compassion and Care for Medically Challenging Pregnancies Act
On April 26, 2017, Legislative Bill 506 (LB506), the Compassion and Care for Medically Challenging Pregnancies Act was approved by Governor Ricketts.  He stated, “Perinatal hospice is an innovative and compassionate model of support for the pregnant woman who finds out that her baby has a life-limiting condition and who chooses to continue her pregnancy.”
Perinatal hospice services may include:
  • Support throughout the pregnancy, delivery, and post-partum period;
  • Guidance regarding medical decisions;
  • Assistance with making memories, pictures, or keepsakes;
  • Personalized birth plan;
  • Pain relief for baby if necessary;
  • Memorial or Funeral Service guidance;
  • Coordinating discharge from the hospital to home or Hospice program.
Your area hospital may be able to provide resources for perinatal hospice and community-based hospice programs in your community that may offer the support you need.
This information is shared as required by LB506.  The Department does not endorse any specific perinatal hospice program.
