No one wants to talk about the trauma of a pregnancy loss, but we want you to know that we are compassionately here for you and there are options to help you understand the reason for your loss.
Even though miscarriage is common, this fact does not reduce the emotional impact it can have. If you have recently experienced a miscarriage (within the first 20 weeks of a pregnancy) or a pregnancy loss (after 20 weeks), support groups, both online and off, can often provide comfort and encouragement.
There are misperceptions about miscarriage and it is common for women to believe an isolated stressful event or a personal action resulted in miscarriage, however this is rarely the case. There are many reasons for pregnancy loss, but most pregnancies end because the baby is not developing normally. About 50% of first trimester miscarriages are due to a chromosome abnormality in the developing baby.
