Results show that «[f]or the Canadians, the occurrence of loss less than one year previously was observed. For both populations the factor associated with complicated grief was gestational age above 28 weeks […]. [Regarding marital satisfaction], marriage duration below five years was found to be associated with grief in both populations. For the Canadians, except for the smaller marriage duration, all of the other characteristics of marital satisfaction presented an association with grief, and 80% of the Canadian women without grief made use of a professional support group […].» (p. 549) «There is a need for recognition of fetal death by society, as the participation of parents in the death process with support from family, friends, and health professionals is critical to coping and overcoming the loss. After the occurrence of stillbirth, women control their emotions by themselves; they feel isolated with their problems and concerns, and do not find room to express their affliction, blocking the elaboration of their grief and causing a negative impact on their mental health.» (p. 551)
