Your Rights During a Miscarriage


When it comes to birth more and more women are realizing the rights and the amount of choices they have.  We are slowly seeing a shift in provider and hospital protocol in our country towards respecting the rights of the mother to make choices in her care and that of her baby.   Birth plans and questionnaires are becoming more common and hospitals are tiptoeing their way into care that places the respect and love for mothers and babies ahead of profit and efficiency.  It’s very slow, yes.  We are far from where we need to be but the movement has been growing for years and is finally making some headway in mainstream birth.  But just as it is true that mothers have the right to a dignified birth and true evidence based care, they also have a right to that when it comes to miscarriage.

Please read the rest over at my post today for Elizabeth Ministry...

  1. This was wonderful. Something that no one wants to think about, but needs to know before it actually happens.

  3. This is an excellent post, Mary. As you can see from the comments, so many people do not have this information to help them through such a difficult and painful time, when it is so hard to think straight and make decisions. It makes me wonder if resources like your list exist in print form, and if not, they should be. It should be part of the required marriage prep to give couples the information they need regarding both the physical and spiritual realms when dealing with miscarriage.

    1. Thank you, Kimberlee. I really like that idea. I wish more parishes were equipped to help families dealing with a miscarriage as well. So many have zero idea of what to do or what can be done and that is a horrible shame.
