One in four pregnancies ends in miscarriage. It can be a very unhappy, frightening and lonely experience. The Miscarriage Association provides support and information when it is most needed. We have the knowledge to help people through.
An estimated one in four pregnancies ends in miscarriage, and a smaller but significant number in ectopic or molar pregnancy. For most of those affected, these pregnancy losses represent the loss of a baby and the hopes, plans and dreams they had for their child.
Even though miscarriage is so common, however, it is something of a taboo subject and people can find it hard to get the information, support and understanding that they need.
The Miscarriage Association makes a difference. We provide support, understanding and a listening ear through a staffed helpline, a network of volunteers and online. We provide accurate, up to date and easily understood information in print and online. We support clinical research into the causes and treatment of miscarriage and promote good practice in medical care. And we work to increase public awareness of the facts and feelings of pregnancy loss and reduce the taboo.
