LONDON, Sept 2 ( – A study conducted by researchers at Macquarie University in Australia and presented to the British Psychological Society on Thursday, found that 70% of women experiencing miscarriage wanted support, information and reassurance. The results of the study are in some ways similar to studies on post-abortion syndrome – a syndrome which most major psychological associations deny exists.

The miscarriage study notes that women “wanted emotional back-up from their partners and to feel that they also ‘felt’ the loss.” Post-abortion syndrome counsellors note that the first step to healing the inner brokenness caused by abortion is acknowledging the loss, and experts in the field such as Dr. Philip Ney note that the loss of a child through abortion affects not only the mother but also the father, the grandparents, and the siblings.
