10 Worst Medical Terms for Pregnancy Loss
I’ve discovered the meanest, most misleading vocabulary ever to hit the ears of women going through miscarriage or pregnancy loss. That’s why I’ve created a mini-medical terminology dictionary. On a scale from one to ten, I reveal my top ten most offensive terms. I also share my initial thought after checking the books (I did my best to add a little humor, which is extremely hard, might I add). Since medical language is also confusing, I provide my straightforward English definition. And to wrap it all up, I give a less offensive term you can ask your provider to use during your next conversation about your loss. I did this because you matter, your story matters, and your unique loss matters.
