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.

I had a miscarriage 9 years ago when I was 21, I am 30 now. I just found out over the weekend that I’m pregnant. Took 3 tests and all say positive. I haven’t been to the doctor to confirm anything yet though. But I’m extremely worried I may miscarry again. I’m probably 4 weeks and two days. What can I do to keep my mind at ease?

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.

I found out I was pregnant in July and sadly miscarried 3 days later so from being overwhelmed to heartbroken all in 3 days was the worst experience in my life!! 3 months later I’m pregnant again and found out only yesterday. Every little thing is running through my mind and you know what girls just think positively and have regular checks i haven’t been the hospital yet but I’m feeling a lot better this time round I just want to wait a couple of weeks until I feel okay enough to go back the hospital because of what I experienced last time. Just turned 19 and i would say I’m only about 2 weeks pregnant if that.

How can I keep my 5weeks pregnant away from miscarriage.

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
