Abstract (Summary)

Research indicates that when women experience perinatal loss, they endure a unique sense of grief that is often overlooked and neglected. This project explored the risks of perinatal loss and how a support group can help to minimize these risks for women.

The purpose of this project was to locate a funding source and write a grant to The California Wellness Foundation to seek funding for the development of two support groups. A literature review was performed to investigate the history of perinatal loss and past research on the effectiveness of support groups. Two support groups were proposed to be held on site at the University of California Irvine Medical Center. This program aims to decrease the symptoms of distress and depression for women. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant are not requirements for successful completion of the project.
