Abstract

Objective: Miscarriage is a frequent event, but one which might be particularly difficult to cope with. The main aim of this study was to explore the features of the women using Internet forums following a miscarriage. Methods: A sample of 211 women who experienced miscarriage and who use the Internet completed an online questionnaire. Sociodemographic data were gathered and three scales were completed: the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale, the Texas Grief Inventory adjusted to miscarriage and the Dyadic Adjustment Scale. Results: Our results show that these women reported a great amount of pain compared to a more standard sample. Interestingly, our findings show that while women reported wishing to be supported, only a few of them sought such support. Conclusion: Further study focusing on support for women who experience miscarriage must be developed and Internet-based programmes are warranted.
