For most women their pregnancy progresses naturally and normally. Sadly, it’s not always the case; approximately one in every five pregnancies end in a miscarriage. The loss of a baby through miscarriage can be an unhappy, frightening, and lonely experience. It helps to remember that what you’re experiencing happens to many people. We all have different ways of grieving too, so give yourself plenty of time. It’s good to talk about how you feel, whether it’s to your partner, a family member, or a close friend. Or, if you know someone who’s been through a similar loss, it can really help you feel less alone.
