Miscarriage – its implications on our clients and their relations

5 December 2016 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Any loss can be a devastating, life changing experience. Losing a child is recognised as one of the most traumatic life experiences. Often the experience of a miscarriage is not considered as such even though it is still the loss of a child. A miscarriage is a real loss that can affect one physically, emotionally, and spiritually. As part of the Nghidu kelma series of events, a workshop was held on ‘Miscarriage – Its Implications on our clients and their relations’. This three hour workshop, started off with the literature and what research says about miscarriage. The main speaker of this event was Ms. Sandra Castillo a nurse, midwife, and psychology graduate. She currently works as a Practice Midwife at Mater Dei Hospital, and, has established the Bereavement & Support Midwifery service where she offers support to couples who experience the loss of pregnancy, loss of a baby, or loss of normality: be it because of a pregnancy following a loss or the expectation and / or birth of a baby with abnormality. This workshop looked at what causes a miscarriage, the significance and grief of such an experience and its long term impact on the family.
