Today I was lucky enough to be a part of an incredible training session which has been created to ensure all medical staff are emotionally equipped to care for women and their partners during miscarriage. I heard about the sessions through @sayingthemword , who herself has attended the sessions, and it was a real privilege for me to be able to speak to medical professionals and share my own personal experience of pregnancy loss. During the day, discussions were had about the language used around patients going through miscarriage, how medical staff could potentially become desensitized to pregnancy loss, and the importance of simple guestures which show they recognise that the patients are going through a physical and emotional trauma. On a personal note, I felt extremely humbled to be able to talk a little about our three losses. To potentially have made a difference to how medical professionals approach miscarriage, and therefore hopefully have a positive impact on another womens miscarriage experience, helps me to feel as though our babies short lives weren't in vain. The NHS do such an incredible job, and it was so encouraging to see so many junior doctors, midwives, nurses and even consultants take the time to attend the session, in order to develop their skills in dealing with such a sensitive situation. I am so grateful for the care they have provided me in the past, and pleased to have been able to play a small part in helping them to further help women experiencing miscarriage. #miscarriage #multiplemiscarriage #recurrentmiscarriage #pregnancyloss #babyloss #miscarriagesupport #miscarriageawareness #iam1in4 #iamoneinfour #miscarriagetraining #gynaecology #epau #epu #earlypregnancy #viabilityscan #earlypregnancyunit #earlypregnancyassesmentunit
