What Do You Wish People Knew About Your Miscarriage?

Help spread awareness.

Posted on

According to ACOG, 10% of known pregnancies end in miscarriage.

Miscarriages (or loss of pregnancy) happen when the embryo growing inside isn't developing as it should.

Most miscarriages occur in the first trimester of pregnancy, but they can happen later, at 14 to 24 weeks gestation (although that is less common).

The loss of your pregnancy is a type of sadness only those who have been through it know how to describe.

In the past, many women kept the pain of their miscarriage to themselves. But today, women are speaking out about their experiences and becoming amazing support systems for one another.

And we want society to be more educated about miscarriages. So, to those of you who have had one, what do you wish people knew about your experience? We hope your powerful stories can help others who have been through similar experiences, and also teach those who don't understand.
