After pregnancy loss, Internet forums help women understand they are not alone
Date:10/19/2011

wasn't unique.

One woman explained that the most important aspect of the forums was knowing "that I am not the only one this has happened to and that I am not alone in this horrible nightmare."

Another common theme was that the online environments provided a safe and validating space for the women to express themselves. Others appreciated the ease and convenience of the Internet and their ability to spend more time composing their thoughts than they would be able to in a face-to-face conversation.

Most participants agreed that boards should have a moderator or facilitator, and that health care professionals should participate. Of the 908 women who answered the question, 82 percent said they had learned new medical information from one of the forums.

"The fact that so many women learned new medical information from the message boards shows what an important resource they can be in this regard," says study senior author Christie Palladino, M.D., M.Sc., an obstetrician/gynecologist with Georgia Health Sciences University's Education Discovery Institute.

Gold and her colleagues are currently pursuing similar research with bereaved parents who attend in-person support groups and plan to compare and contrast the results.
