Abstract / Description of output

Lack of social support greatly affects women’s well-being after miscarriage. In this paper, we report a pilot analysis of three co-design workshops with Muslim women who had experienced at least one miscarriage that focus on leveraging technology to seek social support. While all types of support were valued by Muslim women after miscarriage, informational support was challenging to obtain. We suggest that technology should provide more timely information, support women’s spiritual coping, and help educate women’s support network about miscarriage.
