NOTIS’ Community Interpreters Division presents

WEBSHOPInterpreting for infant & pregnancy loss

Presented by Marisa Rueda 

What is it about?
Pregnancy is often associated with new life. However, not all pregnancies result in the birth of a healthy child. Obstetric care accounts for a large volume of medical encounters requiring an interpreter. While routine obstetric visits may be predictable and short, medical interpreters need to be prepared to interpret for LEP patients who experience pregnancy complications and loss.

During this session, you will learn about common causes, terminology, and standard care for infant and pregnancy loss. Additionally, you will hear stories about women who have first-hand experiences with this tragic loss of life. Their stories will provide insight on the emotional, physical, and psychological toll of experiencing this type of loss.

Coming away from this session you will not only be more intellectually prepared, but also better equipped mentally and emotionally to interpret for patients in these encounters. You will also learn why professional interpreting services can significantly improve outcomes for LEP patients and family members in such situations.  

Learning Objectives

  1. Identify common causes of pregnancy loss and treatment in the early, middle, and late stages of pregnancy.
  2. Learn about standard care for patients who experience pregnancy loss during the first, second, and third trimesters.
  3. Recognize the emotional, psychological, and physical challenges specific to pregnancy and infant loss.
  4. Understand the role of good communication in reducing the risk of emotional and psychological pathologies after pregnancy loss.
  5. Reflect on and/or discuss how interpreting for these losses affects medical interpreters.
