“The pain is unimaginable.” Understanding the Institute of Reproductive Grief Care
“My patient had a miscarriage of twins at 17 weeks. They were still breathing. We didn’t know what to do,” said one nurse.
One in four pregnancies end in miscarriage – and that is only one kind of pregnancy and reproductive loss. Busy hospital Emergency Departments are reporting an average of 5 pregnancy losses each day. At the Institute of Reproductive Grief Care, we educate frontline medical teams to reduce trauma and set patients on a heathy healing trajectory, bringing comfort and hope during a time of great loss.
“The pain of this loss is real; the pain of losing two babies is unimaginable,” said one woman on our healing website.
In addition to educating healthcare professionals, we also offer healing resources for those touched by reproductive loss. This unique and painful loss is often underestimated or ignored, leading to grief that is marginalized, hidden, and unresolved for years. If you, or someone you love, has been touched by pregnancy loss, we have resources to help! See our “Healing & Helpful Toolkits” for details.
