Dr. Sara Mucowski says the new miscarriage leave policy also gives the non-birthing parent time to grieve
Dr. Sara Mucowski offers her thoughts on the updated Army miscarriage leave policy with Giddy, a sexual health platform. With a a recent change in policy, the United States Army will now provide support to the non-birthing parent in in the case of a miscarriage, stillbirth or loss after birth. This update makes the Army the only U.S. service branch to provide this support to the non-birthing parent.
“Thankfully, allowing one to take leave after miscarriage recognizes the need to grieve. We would never expect someone to return to work after the loss of a loved one, and the loss associated with miscarriage is even more complex.”
