The Lancet - Miscarriage: worldwide reform of care is needed (3)

30 April, 2021

Dear HIFA members,

@UK Neil Pakenham-Walsh thank you very much for sharing this. This is a really important topic that needs to be discussed further since there are a lot of families that are affected. If you add the mental torture especially in cultures where women who suffer repeated miscarriages can be seen as carrying “bad omen” one can appreciate the need to bring this to the fore for health authorities to find ways to address that hidden burden.

Great to reconnect

Dr. Linda A. Vanotoo
