Results from a study conducted by the U-M Department of Family Medicine and the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology show that significant service gaps exist between larger, more urban, teaching-based hospitals and smaller, more rural hospitals when it comes to providing stillbirth bereavement care. These services include everything from providing tangible memorabilia after a loss to addressing the impact of loss on marriage or relationships. In this article from the Institute for Healthcare Policy and Innovation, the leader of the study Katherine J. Gold, MD, MSW, MS, explains the barriers to offering adequate bereavement care, and what the negative impact of not having these resources means for grieving parents nationwide.
