For health professionals

The kind of care that women or couples receive from their GP, hospital or community staff can make a real difference to how they cope with the experience of pregnancy loss.

epu4Everyone wants good medical care, based on up-to-date knowledge of miscarriage, ectopic or molar pregnancy. But the human aspects of care are also very important. Kindness, understanding, clear information and sensitive language are just some of the ways that doctors, nurses, midwives, sonographers and paramedics can help people cope with their experience.

The resources that you’ll find here aim to support you in providing the very best care that you can:

Monthly online sessions for healthcare professionals working in early pregnancy:

Our monthly ‘Professional Pause’ sessions provide a safe space for all healthcare professionals working in early pregnancy. It’s an opportunity to discuss and reflect on challenging aspects of  work – an open forum to discuss difficult situations or cases, enable people to share experiences, and offer each other support.

We facilitate these sessions alongside The Ectopic Pregnancy Trust. The sessions are free of charge and we will provide a suggested topic to help start and guide the sessions. We encourage people to join prepared to share their own experiences.

All sessions can be viewed and booked our our Eventbrite page.

Please contact Helen (helen@miscarriageassociation.org.uk) for further details or information about our Professional Pause sessions.
