by Elster, Annelie; Wänegård, Madeleine

Abstract (Summary)
There are about 10-15% of all pregnancies which ends up in a miscarriage. Many of those women who go through a miscarriage suffer from depression and anxiety. The aim of this study is to describe the need of care and support women that have gone through a miscarriage have, so that they can receive better suited help when they see a nurse regarding the miscarriage. The method which was used was a qualitative literature study with ten qualitative articles, one quantitative and one who was both. The result is built on two major themes: needs in the public room and needs in the private room and four subthemes for every major theme that were identified in the analysis. The result shows that nurses and other hospital staff need to be more empathic and sympathetic. The women have a need of having someone to talk to and every woman should get an opportunity to go to a follow-up meeting at the hospital. The women also need to mourn in their own way and if they have the right kind of caring and support from professionals, families and friends they can recover more quickly.
