...when caring for parents going through termination for medical reasons and induction
Dear midwives and student midwives,
this note is written specifically for you. Because even is this occasion you can make a difference in women's lives.
You can encourage, support the woman and her partner in creating positive memories surrounding their tragedy.
You can give her courage, love and trust during labor and afterwards.
She will dwell over and over those same memories for all her life. For this reason is crucial to make them the less traumatic and the more positive possible.
You might also find helpful going through my past posts to understand a bit better what happens to parents going through terminations for medical reasons.
Specifically for you from my experience I can tell you:
Ida Saoirse Scherer,
our first baby girl, who was born and died at 16+5 weeks on the 30th November 2017.
