Little Heartbeats message is....
' Professional considerations '
How information is relayed to the patient, how the negatives are described and the quality of care the patient receives from the team, regardless of the outcome, all have to be considered very carefully.
P : Prompt
Be prompt in treating the patient. PPROM should be treated as an emergency and not just as the next baby loss.
P : Professional
Remain professional at all times.
R : Reassurance
Patients should be reassured that their medical team support the decisions they have made.
O : Open-minded
Remain open to patient suggestions and requests throughout the process.
M : Mental well-being
Be mindful of the the fact that, regardless of outcome, the vast majority of patients are experiencing the unknown and naturally suffering considerable mental anxiety.
Regardless of our families choices, they deserve to know about their condition in pregnancy, they deserve respect and they deserve to know there is hope
