Hello. I began working in the emergency room around a year ago, and have had to help deliver the news of a lost pregnancy more than I care to think about. Having had a miscarriage myself, I can relate to the heartbreak they feel on a level. But, when it comes to comforting someone at that moment.. no one wants to hear “I know how you feel, this happened to me too”. I had a patient recently who affected me more than any others recently. And it’s made me want to do SOMETHING to help, even if it’s in a small way. So I’m asking anyone who heard the news of their loss in an emergency room, if you were given something like a blue and pink infant loss ribbon pin as a gesture of compassion.. how would you of felt?

I wasn't given the news in the ER but I feel like I would have appreciated having been given something none the less. Instead of the dreadful talk from the DR and to be honest I had no idea what he said. I just wanted to get out of there and be with the people I loved.
