Miscarriage

Bereavement and Loss > Miscarriage

A miscarriage or spontaneous abortion is the loss of a pregnancy during the first 20 weeks, when the foetus is not developed enough to survive independently outside the womb. There are many factors which may lead to a miscarriage although the direct cause is usually impossible to identify.

Research proposes that abnormal chromosomes, underlying health conditions in the mother, hormonal abnormalities, tissue rejection and reproductive tract infections can all affect the viability of a pregnancy. The most obvious sign of a miscarriage is vaginal bleeding sometimes accompanied by pain and cramping in the lower abdomen.

Although light vaginal bleeding is relatively common in the first trimester of pregnancy, you should contact your caregiver or hospital if this occurs just to be sure. Although in most cases miscarriage cannot be prevented, women who experience this loss often have feelings of guilt, shock and anger and can be an emotionally and physically draining experience.

Advice and support from counseling and local medical centers is available in most areas. If you have suffered a miscarriage it is important that you find someone who can help you through this time.

Remember, having a miscarriage does not mean you will have another if you get pregnant again. Most women are able to go on and have a healthy pregnancy even after cases of recurrent miscarriage.

I myself suffered a miscarriage and I know how devastating it can be, how much you blame yourself and go back over everything you did and wonder `what if`. I am sure you did your best, as I did, took care of yourself as best you could and even though it is hard to accept you did nothing wrong. I had to accept this, it wasn`t easy and go on and try again.
