Stillbirth: Balancing patient preferences with clinical evidence

Donald J. Dudley
The tragedy of stillbirth has significant ripple effects, affecting not only the patient and her family, but also their health care providers. This tragedy ripples out to family and friends of all. Our goal in caring for women afflicted by stillbirth is to ensure that they experience a caring, supportive, and empathetic environment. Siassakos, et al (BJOG 2017;), showed that we often do not measure up. Their results indicate that patients perceive that they do not receive timely, compassionate, and understanding care. Further, they perceived that providers are deaf with regard to their preferences regarding route of delivery. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
