Will I miscarry again?

Miscarriage is, sadly, fairly common. A quarter of women have experienced a miscarriage in their lifetime.

However, the vast majority of women who miscarry, then go on to have a perfectly healthy pregnancy.

Only 1 percent of women suffer recurrent miscarriages, which is defined as three or more in a row.

This means there is every likelihood that you won’t suffer a miscarriage again, and that your next pregnancy will go well.

There are some things you can do to maximise your chances of a healthy pregnancy.

Tommy's midwives offer support and information for women who have miscarried. Call our midwives on 0800 0147 800, or email us at [email protected].

    I feel exactly the same, just got pregnant again, two months after my miscarriage and I'm so worried that the same will happen again. I'm over-analyzing every small detail.

    Hi
    I just wanted to reassure you that a healthy pregnancy after a miscarriage is possible. I became pregnant 3 months after a miscarriage at 10 weeks. We now have a beautiful, cheeky little girl! The whole pregnancy after a miscarriage is terrifying but try to breathe and trust your body knows it is doing the right thing for you.
    Sending love xx
