Abstract

The scope of the paper addresses Parse's theory without detailed exploration of the methodology of research, as that is an investigation in its own right. Parse's Human Becoming Theory might be applied to a family experiencing the loss of a pregnancy or neonate. A nurse or doula may only encourage a patient to follow the advice of the experts, but after embracing Parse's theory, can facilitate the family's exploration of their choices. This paper explores Parse's theory applied to those experiencing the trauma of the loss of a pregnancy or infant.
