This is a good screening tool to help determine if an individual may be at risk for acute grief trajectory, but it must be kept in mind that this is only a screening tool. It can help guide caregivers in understanding the level or intensity of an individual's loss. The questions asked are done so to determine how an individual who has experienced a pregnancy loss/perinatal death views their loss. Although many-to-most women who lose a pregnancy view the pregnancy as a baby, we must remember that not all do. Everyone's experience is different. I think this app is a good starting part for caregivers to determine the emotional response to the loss that could pose possible concerns.
I had a miscarriage at 16 weeks and delivered my son. This app had the audacity to ask me if I thought of my pregnancy as just a pregnancy or did I see it as an actual baby?? He was a actual baby whom I delivered in the hospital and held in my arms for 3 days.
