There has been increasing awareness of the impact of early perinatal loss for women and their partners. The psychological and physical consequences of such losses have been investigated. Methods have been suggested to provide nursing support for parents. However, research has not been published about the effect of perinatal loss on extended family members, particularly the prospective grandparents. Registered nurses, in the dual role of mother and professional, bring their knowledge of the reproductive process to their family members' experience of grief and loss. This phenomenological study is investigating the lived experience of the registered nurse mother whose daughter or daughter-in-law has experienced an early miscarriage. To be successfully negotiated, grief and loss require adaptive responses; therefore, Roy's Adaptation Model provides the theoretical framework for the study. A purposive sample of eight participants has been interviewed using audio recordings. Data is being analyzed using Colaizzi's method. Implications for nurses caring for parents and grandparents experiencing perinatal loss will be addressed.
