Abstract:
The experience of pregnancy loss is difficult and psychologically challenging. Over 14,000 women experience pregnancy loss in Taiwan annually. This thesis set out to understand the journey women travel from pregnancy loss to subsequent pregnancy and eventual motherhood. The design was exploratory, descriptive and action research focused in order to inform practice development. Initially, a phenomenological approach was selected and six Asia women described their experience of birthing a healthy baby following previous pregnancy loss. Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis was used to analyse the transcripts. Subsequently, a structured literature search identified the Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Society (SANDS) information package as an appropriate information resource.
