How We Help
When Soldiers and their families come to the hospital it is often for medical concerns or illnesses that creates stress for all involved. How these situations are handled by the hospital personnel can comfort and support the family or can become a customer service issue.
One of the situations that can cause stress, anxiety and deep sadness in our young families can be issues around pregnancy. Miscarriage and infant loss are difficult events for any couple to face, add in being away from home, family and friends, or a spouse being away for deployment can make this event more of a catastrophic situation. How we handle these situations with a young family or any family can comfort or hurt them for a very long time if not forever.
The desire of the OB/GYN clinic is to help families during this time of pregnancy loss.
If you find that you or someone you know has not been offered bereavement support or information about bereavement during pregnancy loss, please notify the OB/GYN clinic so they can contact a trained bereavement support person or someone at one of the contact numbers.
