dc.description.abstract Recurrent pregnancy loss refers to three or more consecutive miscarriages and affects an estimated 1% of conceiving couples. This paper examines recurrent pregnancy loss in relation to the middle-range nursing theory of chronic sorrow using a comprehensive literature review with autobiographical narrative as an exemplar, and includes a practice innovation designed for women experiencing pregnancy loss. The author suggests chronic sorrow is a normal response to recurrent pregnancy loss that gives validity to these women’s grief experiences, which nurses are well placed to assess for and address. en
