Abstract [en]

Background: One out of four women experience a miscarriage. Even though the time the parents spent with the pregnancy is short, a relation to the child is established and the parents feel a connection. Parents have expressed their dissatisfaction regarding the lack of information, terminology, and they lack of sympathy and empathy shown by the health-careprofessionals. The social support from family, friends and unknowns were of high importance for bereaving parents. Aim: The aim of this study was to illustrate the parents need of support after a miscarriage. Method: A method to contribute to evidence-based nursing with ground in a literature review was performed to get a wider view of this vaguely explored topic. An analysis of five quantitative and four qualitative articles was carried out. The analysis resulted in five main themes. Results: The general lack of knowledge was the main cause of selfblame among parents. Men and women bereaved differently but the need of their partner as a supporter proved to have been of substantial importance. Talking to unknown people with the same experience showed to be a support for bereaving parents. The support received from the healthcare personal had a big influence on the healing process. Conclusion: Parents needed individualized support. Keywords Needs, parents, pregnancy loss, spontaneous abortion, support.
