Miscarriage support

If you’ve experienced a miscarriage, we’re here to help and support you.

Miscarriage can be devastating. You may be struggling with grief, anxiety and shock, as well as mood swings and tiredness as your hormones adjust.

Our information pages are here to answer the questions that many couples ask about miscarriage. We’ve also spoken to thousands of women about their feelings after a miscarriage, and although no-one can tell you how you should or shouldn’t be feeling, it can be reassuring to read about the experiences of others, in these support pages.

You can also call our midwives, who are trained in bereavement support, on 0800 0147 800.

Please note, in this section, we use the term ‘miscarriage’ in relation to all pregnancy loss, including ectopic and molar pregnancy.

Your miscarriage stories

Through our #MisCourage campaign, hundreds of women have shared their own stories of miscarriage. You might find it reassuring to read about other women’s experiences.

You can share your story here.

    Rainbow baby - at the end of a real storm!

    But what I really wanted to share was our rainbow baby journey. We found out in august we were pregnant again, cue all the anxieties about the first one and wondering if we might go through it all again.

    Bambi

    Very often I would talk to Bambi in my mind knowing that no one else in the world could hear what I was saying to my previous baby, it was our own private conversation.

    Lost

    All I could hear was the word miscarriage. My partner tried to calm me down, advising that maybe we did have the dates wrong and that we were going to be fine.
