Module 17 - Recognizing and understanding your grief
- Your unique experience of pregnancy or infant loss depends on many factors, including your personality, previous deaths or losses, and the supports that you have.
- Some additional factors that influence your experience include lack of recognition of your loss, social isolation, and feelings of guilt or blame.
- Examples of other circumstances that may make your grief more difficult include termination of pregnancy for a life-limiting condition; continuing pregnancy following diagnosis of a life-limiting condition; twin or multiple loss; or recurrent pregnancy loss.
- Your grief is yours: claim it, ask for space, seek information, and request support as you need to.
