Parents' Grief Following Pregnancy Loss: A Comparison of Mothers and Fathers.
Stinson, Kandi M.; And Others
Family Relations, v41 n2 p218-23 Apr 1992
Examined gender differences in bereavement following miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirth, and neonatal death. Interviewed 56 couples using Perinatal Grief Scale. Women scored significantly higher than men on most dimensions of grief at two months, one year, and two years postloss, except on dimension indicating most serious consequences of grief. Findings suggest that men may deny grief and internalize feelings. (Author/NB)
