Miscarriage Survey

If you have miscarried in the past six months, please take this survey being conducted by Lisa Rosenzweig, a doctoral student at Columbia University. This survey is designed to help medical and mental health professionals provide better support to women who have miscarried. I feel that miscarriages are far too often treated as non-events, and attitudes need to change. This can make a difference.

Thanks to Lisa for tackling this issue. Please see the intro from Lisa below.

Everyone has a unique experience with miscarriage and many find help and support through websites like this one. Unfortunately, little is known about women's experiences of support and how this may affect responses to miscarriage, and so I invite you to participate in my dissertation research study examining women’s experiences following a miscarriage. Although there is no direct benefit to you, survey results may help healthcare providers better understand and meet the needs of women following miscarriage. This online survey takes approximately 15-20 minutes and is open to women who have miscarried a wanted pregnancy in the previous 6 months who are 18 years of age or older, living in the United States, and involved in a relationship with a significant other. Participants are eligible for a raffle for a $50 American Express gift certificate. For more information, please don't hesitate to contact me.
