What to Wear

Wear your HomeComing tee!  See the photo below!

HomeComing draws from the idea of a collegiate celebration to bring students back together, and we at Stillbirthday University will draw from that idea with a “spirit week” of fun online activities, photos and stories that can be celebrated globally, and we’ll have a shared in-person time of encouragement and new information over the last weekend of July.  There is no formal dance, though – no formal attire at all is necessary.  In fact, our theme is removing our shoes.


Who can Register?

HomeComing is for SBD doulas, those in similar fields or related roles, and those interested in learning more about what it means to serve as a birth & bereavement doula.


Who to Bring

Homecoming is a time to be recharged as the love-bringers we are, and is a fantastic educational opportunity for credentialed SBD doulas and others alike.  The event is for individual registration, but you are bringing a friend, your spouse, your family, or any combination of the above.  However you’ll like to get here, you will first register for HomeComing itself here, and then you can select a nearby hotel and secure your lodging independently.  The activities are for registered attendees only, so please connect with your travel buddies to have a plan of sightseeing around the awesome area while you’re enjoying the extraordinary time of HomeComing!


There are no registration refunds.  In unforeseen circumstances such as disastrous weather that would cancel the event, it will be rescheduled.  Your cancellation of your registration can then be offered as a giveaway in your honor or you can sell your ticket to another individual.


Attendees and all involved forfeit any liability of stillbirthday, event planners, organizers and/or any persons involved in representing or serving stillbirthday for any injury, illness, mysterious loss/theft or damage incurred during planning, preparation, participation, travel to or from or for any incident or injury during or related to the event.


By registering, you give stillbirthday permission to include you in published photography.


Be prepared to receive amazing gifts at the SBD U Homecoming!  The most valuable partnerships with leading organizations and innovative artisans makes for a wonderful collection of valuable items both for you and for the families you serve.  Swagtacular, swagtastic swag, is what this is going to be.
