DOCTOR TALKS OF HER OWN MISCARRIAGE

The Sensitivity Of The Doctor's Role After A Miscarriage

Guest Post By Uruakanwa Ekwegh

As a medical doctor and also a woman who has experienced a miscarriage, I have been on both the giving and receiving of care after a miscarriage. My experience of a miscarriage exposed me to a whole gamut of emotions that I had no idea were associated with this kind of loss. In fact, I was totally unprepared for how hard it hit me. This made me to wonder: if, as a medical professional, there was so much I did not know about miscarriage - how common it was and how devastating and alienating it could be - then there was a possibility that lay women would know much less than I did.
In much of civilized society, particularly in the Western world, there is a lot of credence given to doctors ensuring that their patients are well informed; even when time does not permit in-depth conversations, reading materials are made available to answer questions and highlight key issues for patients to consider. In the United Kingdom, for example, the Miscarriage Association has leaflets that are usually given to women after a miscarriage by the nursing staff. These leaflets answer so many typical questions associated with this kind of loss and offer follow-up support.

In the study I conducted among Nigerian women, the need for such support was made clear in some questions that were addressed by the study. When women who had admitted to having experienced a miscarriage were asked if the medical and nursing staff that handled their miscarriage treated them with sympathy and understanding, the overwhelming response, with 84% of the votes was, "Yes". This however reveals an unacceptable number of women who do not remember being treated with sympathy and understanding: approximately 1 in 6 women who had had a miscarriage.
Why are these figures important to any healthcare professional that wants to deliver quality care? In establishing the main sources of support these women have after a miscarriage, my study revealed that doctors and nurses were a more important source of support than even their parents, extended family or personal faith. In fact, the only source of support that had marginally higher votes was the spouse (or partner). If the healthcare staff is this important at such a scary, lonely and miserable time of their lives, then it is appalling that any one in such a capacity should be anything less than sympathetic or supportive.
However, the doctor's role goes beyond hand-holding or platitudes. The woman needs, as I have already hinted at earlier, to understand what happened to her: the possible causes, the reasons for the decisions that were taken in the course of her care and the possible emotional aftermath of her experience.
It is interesting that even though 84% remember being treated with sympathy and understanding, only 56% did not blame the doctors for their loss. This is proof that poor communication between doctor and patient is risky, giving rise to uninformed blame-placing. Paternalistic health care delivery does not work, especially when it is an issue as sensitive as pregnancy loss. Furthermore, it may affect future health-seeking behaviour; in the developing world where maternal mortality is a major problem, this is a risk that cannot be taken.
The role of the doctor in times of loss is very sensitive; we are not taught how to handle such roles in medical school. Some of us learn from personal experience; like me, we learn to do to other patients what we wish had been done for us. However, we all need to appreciate our importance in times like these and rise to the occasion.

PAP SMEAR MAY TEST FETAL CELLS

There may be a new way to test the fetal cells early in pregnancy with a Pap smear type of test.  Apparently there are fetal cells way down into a woman's cervix during a pregnancy.  This is a much less invasive way to gain information rather than some of the other tests that are not only invasive, but are done quite late in gestation.  Read more:

Scanning a fetus’s genome just a few weeks after conception may soon be an option for expecting
Miscarriage Remembrance Necklace
parents. Mom just needs to get a Pap smear first.

By scraping a woman’s cervix as early as five weeks into a pregnancy, researchers can collect enough fetal cells to test for abnormalities linked to more than 6,000 genetic disorders, researchers report November 2 in Science Translational Medicine. It’s not clear exactly how fetal cells make their way down to the cervix, says study coauthor Sascha Drewlo of Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit. But the cells may invade mom’s mucus-secreting glands, and then get washed into the cervical canal.
Current prenatal tests include amniocentesis and chorionic villus sampling, but they work later in pregnancy: at least 12 weeks for amnio and at least nine weeks for CVS. Amnio requires a long needle threaded through a pregnant woman’s belly and uterus; CVS often does, too. Instead, Drewlo’s team gathered fetal trophoblast cells, which give rise to the placenta, and were able to examine the genomes of 20 fetuses.
The new technique, which can work with as few as 125 fetal cells, could one day help physicians care for their tiniest patients. For some genetic conditions, such as congenital adrenal hyperplasia, early detection means mom can take some medicine to “actually treat the fetus in utero,” Drewlo says.

CELEBRITIES WHO'VE SUFFERED MISCARRIAGE

I have a page on my website devoted to celebrities who have had babies over the age of 40 and even over the age of 50 (getpregnantover40.com). But there are also a lot of celebrities who have publicly talked about their miscarriages.  Sometimes I think it helps the rest of us who have experienced one or most pregnancy losses to know that miscarriage has no boundaries.  Even the rich and famous are subject to the laws of nature.  Some of the celebrities who have talked about their miscarriage in this article include:

DID EMFS CAUSE THIS WOMAN'S MISCARRIAGE?

Miscarriage and EMF's (Electromagnetic Fields)

Based on what I know about EMF's, I usually recommend that women who are trying to conceive or
http://getpregnantover40.com/chakras-for-fertility.htm
Fertility Sacral Chakra Necklace, Bracelet
already pregnant avoid direct exposure or limit their exposure to EMF's.
See www.getpregnantover40.com for more on how to detoxify your environment for pregnancy 

 This article talks about a woman who believes that her miscarriage was related to work exposure:

Hannah Metcalfe revealed that being exposed to electromagnetic waves leads to stomach cramps, flu-like symptoms and splitting headaches.

Ms Metcalfe added that she is so sensitive to the waves that she has quit her job as a trainee solicitor and her partner, Mark Terry, goes to the town to run his errands.

“A week ago I had some very bad bleeding and was sure I had miscarried again. ¬Thankfully the baby is fine. I need to avoid Wi-Fi as much as I can. It makes me ill and I have to consider what it could be doing to the baby”, she said.

10 THINGS TO KNOW FROM MISCARRIAGE SURVIVOR

10 Things I'd Like the Mother of a Stillborn or Miscarried Child to Know

Guest Post By Elena LaVictoire

Every November 1, I commemorate the anniversary and short life and death of our sixth child, Raphael. Since experiencing a stillbirth first hand, I have tried to reach out to other women going through similar situations.
Recently, I went to the brief calling hours and funeral for a little baby that just never breathed on his own. His parents were there, all sad and numb with grief. I gave the mom a little prayer book and I tried not to say anything stupid. I mainly just said that I was so sorry for her pain and that I wished that I could make it better. With the time constraints and a line of other people wishing to pay their respects there wasn't much else to say. But to every mom who has suffered a stillbirth, here are 10
http://getpregnantover40.com/saint-gerard-for-fertility.htm
St. Gerard to protect pregnancy
things I wish I could tell them.
1. It is okay to be sad. We don't "do" grief very well in this culture and I really think that's a shame. Nonetheless, losing a baby and all of the hopes and dreams that go with it can be a shattering experience, and there is nothing wrong with having those feelings of deep sadness and grief.
2. Time will make it better. The images and events fade into our memories and the intensity of the pain starts to lessen. It doesn't make you less of a mother to start to feel a little happiness in your life when you're ready for it. The grief will still come in waves, (I have been surprised at how much more I have thought about my own son as the 10 year mark approached), but those waves will space out and when they do come, eventually you won't feel as overwhelmed by them.
3. Don't feel obligated to pretend that you don't feel the way you feel. People want you to feel better so that they can feel better. The scripture says to "Mourn with those who mourn." Don't be afraid to remind them of that.
4. Take care of yourself. Eat, exercise, get dressed. These things really help.
5. The loss of my child changed me permanently. It made me stronger and gave me a different perspective on everything. Nothing like finding the answer to "what's the worst that could happen?" to make everything else seem not so bad. I found a new appreciation for the other people in my life and life's little tragedies just didn't seem as tragic. In many ways, living through a stillbirth made me wiser.
6. It was difficult and even painful to be around other pregnant women or babies for a long time. Be prepared for that and guard your heart accordingly. It won't always be that way but it will be for a time.
7. You will always be your baby's mother. Death didn't change that. Don't be afraid to commemorate your child, perhaps with a picture or piece of jewelry or some other memorial. Or perhaps you'll develop a little ritual or tradition to remember the baby on his or her birthday. The baby had a life, albeit a short one. It is good to honor and remember that. I always remember my baby's birthday
8. If you look around and are observant, you'll see signs that some of the other women around you
http://getpregnantover40.com/miscarriage-memorial-jewelry.htm
Miscarriage Memorial Necklace
have had a loss. Maybe a little piece of jewelry or a tattoo or something will give it away. I've met some wonderful women and heard some amazing stories asking about a little angel pin or necklace.
9. No way around it, the next pregnancy will be scary, especially around the time of the first loss. I remember being terrified during my only ultrasound with the pregnancy after my stillbirth. I was so afraid that they would find something wrong. I think it's normal to be cautious and even scared. But I'd rather live with a little fear than to not try again and live with a lifetime of regret.
10. It may take some time, but eventually, if you're looking for it, you may just come to see your baby's part in God's plan. My son's little life had meaning, and losing him prepared me for so many other things in my life. And his siblings have a little intercessor waiting for them in heaven. Maybe he was there to meet my mother when she passed away too? I may not know the entire plan but I'm just sure that whatever happened, even though it was sad and painful, it was part of God's goodness, even if I don't understand it all completely.

PROGESTERONE TEST PREDICTS MISCARRIAGE

The whole subject of progesterone supplementation in pregnancy has been hotly debated as to whether or not it can help prevent miscarriage.  However, testing progesterone in women with bleeding in pregnancy may prove to be quite helpful in determining whether or not the pregnancy is or will be viable.  A recent study shows that measuring progesterone in women with early pregnancy complication is a good predictor of outcome.  Read more:


SEE ALSO: THINGS YOU MAY NOT KNOW ABOUT PREGNANCY LOSS AND MISCARRIAGE (getpregnantover40.com) 

 

Vaginal bleeding or pain occurs in around a third of women in early pregnancy. Doctors use ultrasound to test whether it is a viable pregnancy or a non-viable pregnancy, such as a miscarriage or an ectopic pregnancy, but this can sometimes be inconclusive.
Some studies have suggested that a single progesterone measurement in early pregnancy may be a useful test, but results are conflicting.
So a team of UK and Dutch researchers set out to determine the accuracy with which a single progesterone measurement in early pregnancy can discriminate between a viable and a non-viable pregnancy.
They analysed the results of 26 studies involving 9,436 pregnant women. Seven studies looked at women with pain or bleeding and an inconclusive ultrasound assessment, while 19 studies looked at women with pain or bleeding alone.
Differences in study quality were taken into account to identify and minimise bias.
The results show that a single low progesterone measurement for women in early pregnancy presenting with bleeding or pain can discriminate between a viable and a non-viable pregnancy when an ultrasound investigation proves to be inconclusive.

CAFFEINE BEFORE CONCEPTION MAY LEAD TO MISCARRIAGE

Most of us have heard by now that caffeine in pregnancy can cause complications and even contribute to miscarriage.  However, according to this article, both men and women should cut out caffeine if they are trying to conceive.  Pre-conception caffeine consumption by both partners leads to
http://www.getpregnantover40.com/fertility-necklace.htm
Click here for the Fertility Angel Necklace
a higher miscarriage risk,  Read more:

 The team found that couples' caffeine consumption was associated with miscarriage risk; female partners who consumed more than two caffeinated beverages daily prior to conception were 74% more likely to experience miscarriage than those who consumed less.
And they found the risk of miscarriage was just as strong when male partners consumed more than two caffeinated beverages a day in the weeks before conception; these men had a 73% greater risk, compared with those who drank less than two caffeinated beverages daily.
"Our findings also indicate that the male partner matters, too," says Dr. Buck Louis. "Male preconception consumption of caffeinated beverages was just as strongly associated with pregnancy loss as females."

The researchers note that previous studies have identified an increased risk of miscarriage with caffeine consumption in early pregnancy. However, they say such studies were unable to establish whether caffeine intake was a direct cause of miscarriage or an indicator of an unhealthy pregnancy.
A new study suggests that couples who are trying for a baby should take note of their caffeine intake, after finding that both male and female partners who consume at least two caffeinated beverages daily in the weeks before conception may be at greater risk for miscarriage.

PLASTICS AND MISCARRIAGE

Soft Plastics - Beware - Recycle Don't Buy Or Use

By Dr. M. Wolken

You may not have heard of the dangers of phthalates in soft plastic containers, but over 1 billion pounds are produced worldwide each year. Daily you surely have used a product that contains them. They may be hazardous to your loved ones especially unborn and the young boys.
Where are they found Phthalates are chemicals widely found everywhere and in too many things. It is used as a softener in hair sprays, perfumes, cosmetics, toys, shower curtains, wood finishers, lubricants, certain medical devices, plastic wrap, plastic storage containers . If children put these plastic toys contain phthalates in their mouths the plastic can be released and ingested. When food is warmed or liquids are kept for extended periods in these soft plastic containers the phthalates are released into or liquid kept in the container and into the air.
http://getpregnantover40.com/saint-gerard-for-fertility.htm

 

 SEE ALSO: DETOXIFY YOUR ENVIRONMENT FOR PREGNANCY AND FERTILITY (getpregnantover40.com)


Cosmetics and personal care products, including nail polish, mascara, fragrances, shampoos and conditioners, lotions, hair growth formulations, antiperspirants, and sunscreen, are a large exposure source. Gum, candy and oral pharmaceuticals may also contain them.. Even "new car smell" is partly due to phthalates used in car manufacturing. People have often have high levels of certain phthalates in their systems. Exposure can come through ingestion, inhalation, direct injection and skin contact.
Dangers to reproductive health
Perhaps most concerning are these chemicals' effects on reproductive health. In a study published in the May 2005 Environmental Health Perspectives, it was found that pregnant women exposed to common levels of phthalates might have baby boys with smaller genitals and incomplete testicular descent.
If pregnant moms have high levels of phthalates in their systems their infant boys have a 10-times greater chance of suffering reproductive damage.
Adult men can develop sperm damage if exposed to phthalates {DEP Dibutyl phthalate (DBP) or Diethyl phthalate (DEP)or Butylbenzyl phthalate (BBP)}. This can lead to DNA damage to the sperm, and infertility and may also be linked to miscarriages, and birth defects, infertility and cancer in offspring ... This is a risk to public health."
Solution

  • Educate.
  • Go natural and read labels to avoid phthalates.
  • Use glass, stainless steel or the new nagelene to store liquids or solid food in.
  • Never store hot foods or drinks in plastic containers.
  • Use stainless steel or nagelene water bottles.
Pregnant women or women of child-bearing age should avoid using plastic when storing your food and drinks, and diligently read the back of cosmetic labels.

REMEMBERING BABIES LOST ON VETERANS DAY

I know that Veterans Day is to remember and honor and thank all of those who served in the United States Armed Forces.  But it's days like this that can trigger memories of loved ones lost.  For many years before I had my daughter, I would remember the babies I lost through miscarriage on days like

these.  I found that it was very helpful to have a little memorial service for each of the babies I lost.  I have a page on my website for anyone interested which goes through the steps I took to have a little memorial for each lost baby.

CRUEL HEALTHCARE WORKERS AND MISCARRIAGE

I'll never forget once when I was sitting in the waiting room at a fertility doctor's office (this is before we threw in the towel and started trying naturally).  The receptionist apparently failed to realize that every word she said could be heard by a waiting room full of people.  She was on the phone and she thought she had failed to make an appointment for one of the patients.  She called the patient and was told that she miscarried.  The receptionist then says to herself (but out loud), "I'm sorry you had a miscarriage, but you saved my butt!"

Wow, I was shocked and mortified that this lady would actually say that within earshot of a bunch of
http://getpregnantover40.com/chakras-for-fertility.htm
women and couples who were doing everything in their power to get pregnant.  After suffering through six miscarriages on the road to parenthood, I encountered many insensitive remarks and I was amazed that these people who had chosen a supposedly "helping" profession could be so cruel.
Other remarks I had to endure include:

"You can always adopt"
"Maybe it's for the best"
"How old did you say you were?"
and so on.

The one fertility doctor basically baffled me with a high tech explanation of what happened to the point that my eyes glazed over and I just tuned him out.  The bottom line was that I miscarried - no amount of medical jargon was going to change that.
In a few instances, I was basically ignored.  No condolences were given, I was just given the bomb that my baby had died and sent on my way.
Boy, if I could do it all over again, I would have said something back to them or written a letter after the fact about their insensitivity.  Maybe the next patient coming along might benefit.
The bottom line is that healthcare workers do need more education on how to handle patients going through miscarriage.  "I'm sorry for your loss" could go a long way.

WHY DID GOD LET MY MISCARRIAGE HAPPEN?

Miscarriage and Questioning God

I think most of us who have gone through a miscarriage or been told that our pregnancy isn't progressing as it should be turn to our faith or belief system for help and guidance. I can't tell you how many times I turned to mine and was let down. It really does make you question if anyone or anything is out there listening to all those prayers.

Visit: www.getpregnantover40.com for more on  infertility in the bible 

 You question if all of this is just a random sequence of events or if there is a purpose to the emotional and physical pain and suffering when you struggle with infertility and the heartbreak of miscarriage. Obviously I still don't have the answers but what I can say is that when I finally did have my daughter after six miscarriages, it totally felt like everything happened the way it was supposed to.

Miscarriage is devastating and perhaps the timing wasn't right for all of the pregnancies I lost.  Perhaps each of those babies that came and went decided that they would leave and make way for my daughter.  I guess I will never know, but I've come to the conclusion that you can't question everything, you accept what you're given.
