KOCH, Cândida; SANTOS, Célia  e  SANTOS, Margarida Reis. Portuguese translation, adaptation and validation of the Perinatal Bereavement Grief Scale (PBGS) in women with pregnancy loss. Rev. Enf. Ref. [online]. 2012, vol.serIII, n.6, pp.123-130. ISSN 0874-0283.  http://dx.doi.org/10.12707/RIII1151.

The early loss of pregnancy for many women may be a significant psychosocial stressor. To mourn a loss of this type can be complex and early evaluation can allow more effective interventions. Few instruments exist for this assessment. Therefore in this study we sought to translate, adapt, and evaluate the applicability of the PBGS to women in situations of involuntary pregnancy loss, examining its measurement capabilities. The sample consisted of 100 women between four and six weeks after their respective losses. The analysis of the scale’s primary components confirmed its unique dimensional structure as proposed by the author. Although slightly lower than originally presented, the scale’s level of reliability, as evidenced in our study (Cronbach’s Alpha coefficient 0.81), is also satisfactory. The scale shows good temporal stability (r = 0.98, p <0.01). The scale, applied in this study, was found to be both reliable and valid, and may constitute an important tool to be used by nurses in evaluating women at risk of developing complications while adapting to pregnancy loss.
