Study exposes years of silent suffering after pregnancy loss: May 2021
Uncovering Prolonged Grief Reactions Subsequent to a Reproductive Loss: Implications for the Primary Care Provider is research that exposes years of silent grief and suffering after pregnancy loss.
The study examines how the emotional impact of pregnancy loss can be felt for years or decades after the loss, especially in cases where grief is disenfranchised, marginalized or unresolved.
The study analyzes 164 stories posted anonymously on Life Perspectives’ healing websites MiscarriageHurts.com and AbortionChangesYou.com over a six-month period between November 2019 and May 2020. The stories were reviewed for details regarding the time span between the pregnancy loss and the composition of the blog post, and then analyzed for subsequent relationship problems and detrimental mental health conditions.
This study is valuable for anyone with an interest in better understanding the prolonged, emotional impact of pregnancy loss - grief reactions that weren’t even acknowledged until the 1970s.
