Pregnancy Loss

Every form of pregnancy loss, such as miscarriage or stillbirth, carries its own unique circumstances — all of which can have big impacts on your emotional and physical wellbeing.

These losses can have profound emotional and physical impacts. At VA, we recognize and understand that losing a pregnancy can affect you in many ways. Emotionally, you may experience grief, sadness, guilt, anger, and a range of other complex emotions. Physically, there may be physical discomfort, hormonal changes, and the need for recovery.

In addition to these challenges, you may face difficulties in coping with the loss, managing relationships, and finding support during this time. At VA we acknowledge and understand the multifaceted impact of pregnancy loss and strive to provide compassionate support to help you navigate your unique journey of healing and recovery.

What services does VA provide for pregnancy loss?

Each loss is unique, so your VA health care team will work with you to identify a plan and treatment solutions that will best meet your needs. Some Veterans may be eligible for burial benefits for their dependents.

In addition, each VA facility has a Women Veterans Program Manager (WVPM) who can help you access reproductive mental health care.

VA also provides Maternity Care Coordinators who can help you:

  • Understand your coverage and options
  • Navigate health care services both inside and outside of VA
  • Access care for your other physical and mental health needs
  • Connect to community resources
  • Answer questions about billing

Pregnancy loss and mental health
