It is estimated that miscarriage occurs in approximately one in four pregnancies and for some women, it occurs more frequently than this. Despite how common it is, many people do not openly talk about it.


For many women, miscarriage can be a very upsetting and frightening experience. Apart from the physical impact on a woman’s body, miscarriage can  accompanied by feelings of grief and loss which are often experienced for weeks and even months after a miscarriage. Such feelings are normal. 

Some of the language used is medicalised and we are aware that this may be emotionally difficult to read. However, it is important that you are aware of the medical terminology that is likely to be used by healthcare providers. To try and help you as best as we can with this, we have provided a glossary of terms to refer to when reading the information. We have also provided additional information leaflets and web links that we hope will be of support to you.
