Abstract

BACKGROUND: Little is known about how to best care for mothers after stillbirth. As such, this paper will report the satisfaction and perceptions of an online yoga intervention (12-week beta test) in women after stillbirth. METHODS: Participants (n=74) had a stillbirth within the last 24-months (M time since loss 9.65 ± 6.9 months). Post-intervention satisfaction surveys and interviews and dropout surveys were conducted. Descriptive statistics were used to analyze survey responses and demographic information. A phenomenological approach was used to explore and understand unique experiences of participant interviews. Data were analyzed using NVivo10. RESULTS: Twenty-six women (M age 33.73 ± 4.38) were completers (> 3 wks of yoga), 26 (M age 31.82 ± 4.13) were non-completers (< 3 wks of yoga), and 22 (M age 32.94 ± 2.93) dropped out. Twenty completers participated in a post-intervention satisfaction survey with 75% (n=15) reporting being very satisfied or satisfied with the online yoga intervention, found it to be very enjoyable or enjoyable, and very helpful or helpful to cope with grief. Satisfaction and perceptions of the intervention in those who completed an interview (n=12) were clustered around the following themes: benefits, barriers, dislikes, satisfaction, and preferences. Of the 22 dropouts, 14 completed a dropout survey. Women withdrew from the study due to pregnancy (n=3, 21%), burden (n=3, 21%), stress (n=2, 14%), lack of time (n=2, 14%), did not enjoy (n=1, 7%), and other (n=3, 21%). CONCLUSION: Findings here may be used to help design future research.
