"The consequences of making miscarriage management unsafe will land most heavily on the marginalized and vulnerable. Our appalling maternal mortality rate in people of color will increase by miscarrying while Black. Our country and health care system are rigged to assume criminal intent and withhold lifesaving treatment from these mothers.
The bedrock of my professional relationship with my patients is compassion and trust. I need to be a safe harbor where my patients can share their deepest fears, and I can respond with information and understanding.
Motherhood and miscarriage already carry too much guilt. Our current legal quagmire now also makes them more dangerous."
Kim M. Puterbaugh is an obstetrician-gynecologist.
She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, "Post-Roe, miscarriage is more dangerous."

With so many demands on their time, physicians today report record levels of burnout. Burnout is caused by many factors, one of which is clinical documentation. Studies indicate physicians spend two hours documenting care for every hour spent with patients.
At Nuance, we are committed to helping physicians do what you love – care for patients – and spend less time on clinical documentation. The Nuance Dragon Ambient eXperience, or DAX for short, is an AI-powered, ambient clinical intelligence solution that automatically captures patient encounters securely and accurately at the point of care. Physicians who use DAX have reported a 50 percent decrease in documentation time and a 70 percent reduction in feelings of burnout, and 83 percent of patients say their physician is more personable and conversational.
Rediscover the joy of medicine with clinical documentation that writes itself, all within the EHR.
