This content session will present the results of a phenomenological study exploring how women’s grief experiences related to infertility have been disenfranchised. The results identify the losses associated with infertility, how the loss fails to follow social norms, accounts of how others have invalidated their grief, and how the women sought adequate support. The discussion will include an adaptation of traditional grief models and how to effectively maximize counseling.
