Guidelines for health care professionals supporting families experiencing a perinatal loss. Paediatr Child Health. 2001 Sep; 6(7): 469–477. PMID: 20107555; PMCID: PMC2807762.

Despite the lack of evidence from randomized trials that providing specific psychological support or counselling after perinatal death has any effect on the prevention of pathological grieving or long term psychosocial morbidity (2), an empathetic, caring environment that facilitates a mother’s and family’s acceptance of the reality of death are now part of standard perinatal care and support (3). This statement provides insights into the phases, and processes of grieving and mourning, especially the unique aspects of pregnancy loss and neonatal death. Based on descriptive studies and common sense practice, general guidelines for caregivers are provided, with more specific suggestions for special conditions.
