Miscarriage can be a very private and lonely experience, affecting one in every four women. 

Statistics show that only 3 in every 5 pregnancy’s are carried full term and result in a live baby (http://www.miscarriagesupport.org.nz). The highest risk period is between 4 and 6 weeks, with over 99% of miscarriages happening in the first trimester (or 14 weeks).

Often couples report extreme stress, grief and self-blame at this time and the loss can affect them throughout their lives. Support can be difficult to receive as often it is hard to break the news to family and friends when they may not even have known you were pregnant.

How do you deal with miscarriage?
