Women of Lost Pregnancy Survey
This survey is part of a yearlong project of crystal dawn herbs, LLC and myself, Crystal Merrell, to gain better understanding in how to best serve women who have experienced a loss of pregnancy. I understand that it affects each woman differently, and that each woman has different needs in the moments, days, months, or years following.
My reason for this project is to gather a list of knowledge, resources, and tools that could be available to women who would like them. Examples of what I anticipate documenting include standard practices of hospitals, doctors, and midwives and how they serve or dis-serve the woman; herbs for physical, mental, and emotional support; community resources including support groups or therapists; useful tools for coping and communication as needed.
I do not hold judgement for or against any woman on how she feels about her loss of pregnancy. This is a complex situation that cannot be defined and regulated with 'shoulds' and 'should nots'. Please be honest about your perception and needs surrounding your loss. There is not a wrong or right answer. Some women need no support and some women need support even 40 years after the loss. Both women are right if they are truly being themselves.
I greatly appreciate your sharing a bit of your perspective with me. If you would like to have a conversation further explaining your experience, please check the box at the end of the survey.
