Family Support through JurisMD
During her years of practice, Dr. Bartholomew has often spoken to families and answered questions and concerns for them many months after they lost their child, and those are often the same conversations had at the time of their child’s death. But it is often too much to take in and assimilate in the whirlwind of grief and loss; maybe too hard to understand the medical jargon an unskilled provider used to explain what is happening, or just too much to take in while dealing with the thought of not seeing your most precious baby tomorrow.
In JurisMD, we have created a place where you can come, discuss your grief, start to put the pieces back together, and with the help of people who have been there before, start to understand what happened to your loved one. Maybe it is just reading through the medical record with someone and having questions answered, maybe it is looking for reliable grief resources, or maybe finding legal assistance in the case of negligence. We are here to guide you through this daunting process.
