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.

To talk to others who’ve been there, online and in confidence, visit BabyCentre’s miscarriage support group.

    My very special angel babies

    I didn't need ten days, I passed my baby the next day, I knew I was no longer pregnant, the second scan confirmed a blighted ovum, but to me that wasn't a blighted ovum, that was my baby.

    Ectopic confusion

    On that Monday I remember saying to the nurse, "I'm worried it might be ectopic." Her reply was that it probably wasn't. And that was that.

    I never knew there was such a thing as a missed miscarriage

    The best thing anyone said to us was that parenthood is a roller coaster, sometimes right from the start - I think it sums up our experience perfectly.
