Recurrent Pregnancy Loss

couple-on-couchLosing a pregnancy is a devastating experience and when it is recurrent, many people are overwhelmed with grief and anxiety. There are many known causes that account for pregnancy loss, including: inherited or spontaneous genetic abnormalities, anatomical defects of a woman’s reproductive system, hormonal imbalances, immunological defects, infectious causes, and blood clotting abnormalities. An investigation to determine if an underlying cause is responsible is necessary. Correction of abnormalities significantly increases the possibility of a successful pregnancy. Close management of pregnancy during the first trimester is part of the treatment plan and has been demonstrated to reduce the risk of additional losses as well.

Cascade Health Solutions/Transitions Program: Sarah DOES NOT see patients in private practice. She works in the Transitions Program at Cascade Health, which is basically a pre-hospice program. She does home visits to discuss end-of-life care, connect patients/caregivers with needed resources and does grief counseling with patients, families and caregivers. Referral needs to come from the sick person’s PCP, not from us unless sick person is our patient. Transitions program is free of charge.
