Creating shared value through social responsibility
We are proud partners of a new documentary due to be released on Stan in October 2020, the Misunderstandings of Miscarriage.
The film follows Australian actress and filmmaker, Tahyna MacManus on her four-year journey of pregnancy and miscarriage. The film sheds light on the physical, emotional and psychological impact of miscarriage, as well as the lived experiences of a number of women in their search of support and understanding.
We decided to support the film because of the strong alignment with the work that our teams do every day, in supporting women and their families during their fertility health and pregnancy journeys.
It's our hope that our partnership will drive a meaningful conversation about miscarriage, and help remove the stigma that surrounds it. We want people to be fully supported and to feel safe opening up about their experience - both at home and at work. The Virtus leadership team is here to support our staff as much as our patients in coping with pregnancy loss and we have updated our compassionate leave to reflect this.
