Pregnancy Loss

    Being pregnant can be a very exciting time for some, while it’s an extremely painful time for others. First it’s important to remember that few miscarriages are preventable. Over 50% of miscarriages are due to abnormal genetics with the baby. There’s no magical way to stop a miscarriage from happening, since by the time you realize you’re bleeding it’s because the baby is almost deceased. Pregnancy loss is unfortunately common, as miscarriages occur in approximately 1 in 4 women during their reproductive years. Losing a pregnancy that is so desperately wanted can be devastating to families. Whether you lose your baby early in your pregnancy or at the end, we’re here to educate you to help you understand what is happening and why. Use this section to gain knowledge about inevitable situations and challenges that comes with pregnancy loss.
