MISCARRIAGE

Miscarriage is one of the most common complications associated with early pregnancy. Most miscarriages occur during the first few months of pregnancy.

1 in 4 - of pregnancies result in miscarriageAlthough miscarriage is relatively common, it can be an extremely traumatic and devastating experience.

There are list of our recommended charities who we support at the bottom of the page. These charities focus on researching into why miscarriages happen and how they can prevent it.

What is a miscarriage?

A miscarriage is a loss of a pregnancy under 24 weeks. However an estimated 75 percent of miscarriages happen during the woman's first trimester (week 1 through week 12, or about 3 months)

What are the symptoms of miscarriage?

The main sign of a miscarriage is vaginal bleeding, varying from light spotting, brownish discharge to heavy bleeding.

It may be followed by cramping and pain in your lower abdomen.

 

Light vaginal bleeding can be relatively common during the first twelve weeks of pregnancy, and doesn’t necessarily mean your having a miscarriage.

What to do if you think you are having a miscarriage. 

If you are worried about what to do, contact your GP, the Early Pregnancy Unit or NHS non- emergency helpline on 111.

 

In an emergency please attend your nearest Accident and Emergency department.
