Expectant Management of Miscarriage Aftercare Instructions

Resource Properties

Abstract:

This two-page document is a take-home sheet of aftercare instructions for providers to give to patients using expectant management ("watch and wait") of a miscarriage. It uses a question and answer format to educate patients about the natural process of watching and waiting for the pregnancy tissue to pass. It discusses how the provider knows it is a miscarriage, and what the patient using this method should expect, including cramping and bleeding with clots. The document provides information about efficacy, pain management, and how soon the patient can try to get pregnant again. A list of symptoms for which the patient should call or return to their provider, including a place to write down their phone number and follow-up appointment information, is provided.
