question about miscarriages and getting the news
An acquaintance of mine is a doctor, she recently had to tell a woman that she’d had a miscarriage. She wrote: “I don’t think I did a great job of it and I want to do it better next time. If anyone’s been on the receiving end of this kind of news, what was helpful or not helpful for you to hear? Did you prefer medical language (e.g. is “embryo” or “fetus” too harsh for non-medical people?)”.
I’ve never been through a miscarriage, but I know that some readers have. If you have thoughs, you can leave them here (you are welcome to post anonymously, if you’d like).
