Pregnancy loss and the disenfranchised grief that can accompany the loss can be difficult for parents to process. Counselors can struggle when counseling clients to find a way to process their pregnancy loss and grief. Jaffe (2017) described the reproductive story as an intervention for therapists to use when working with clients who experience a pregnancy loss. Therapists can use a reproductive story to examine clients’ developmental aspects of their childhood and the narrative they developed about what a parent is and what a family look likes. The grief of men will be explored, examining how the reproductive story can be universally applied through different theories to help clients cope with the grief experienced.
