The occupational therapist may also provide education and resources to help the mother understand and cope with the physical and emotional changes that can occur after childbirth and loss.
This may include strategies for managing fatigue, stress, and other common challenges that can arise during the postpartum period.
In addition, the occupational therapist may work with the mother to develop a plan for returning to work or other activities, taking into account any physical or emotional limitations that may need to be considered.
The therapist may also provide support and guidance to help the mother adapt to any changes in her role or responsibilities as a result of the loss.
It is important for the occupational therapist to be sensitive to the unique needs and circumstances of each mother, and to provide a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental environment for the mother to express her feelings and work through her grief.
