Early pregnancy miscarriage
Early pregnancy miscarriage is also known as early pregnancy loss or spontaneous abortion. Miscarriage refers to the loss of a pregnancy within the first 23 weeks of gestation. Miscarriage most commonly occurs during the first trimester of pregnancy, typically within the first 12 weeks.
It’s natural to feel frightened if you notice bleeding in early pregnancy but the Miscarriage Association says that around one in four women has some bleeding in the early stages of pregnancy and most go on to have a normal, healthy baby.
At this challenging time, the highly qualified and experienced health professionals at The Amara Clinic can provide expert guidance and treatment, sensitive support and a beautiful, calm and serene environment in which to recover.
Recurrent miscarriage is diagnosed when a woman experiences three or more consecutive miscarriages. The distress of losing a baby can make you fear for future pregnancies- but although miscarriage is common, recurrent miscarriage is not. Around fifteen per cent of pregnant women experience the loss of a pregnancy. But only two per cent of pregnant women experience two pregnancy losses in a row, and only about one in a hundred will sadly suffer three consecutive pregnancy losses.
Recurrent miscarriage can be a result of various factors, including genetic abnormalities, hormonal imbalances, uterine abnormalities and autoimmune disorders. If you are concerned about recurrent miscarriages, the consultant Gynaecologists at The Amara Clinic can offer investigations, analysis and support and, where indicated, refer you to a specialist unit for further evaluation and specialised care.
