Abstract

The purpose of this project was to create a culturally and linguistically appropriate, evidence based learning curriculum on perinatal loss support for the Hispanic community. This project was developed to address unmet mental health needs and integrate a continuum of care focusing on early intervention and maternal mental health within the Hispanic community. Current research is limited, but specifies a need for further exploration as maternal mental health is a leading complication during pregnancy. Implementation has the potential to lead to a stronger community connection and health delivery system. The perinatal loss curriculum, covering etiology of perinatal loss, coping strategies, grieving processes and expectations of subsequent pregnancies, was piloted in January 2016 within the Hope for Mothers support group established through Samaritan Health Services. The service is ongoing.
