This is nobody's favorite topic. But it happens with fair regularity. I would like to honor and support all of my patients and all others who have gone through this by posting on this unfortunate life event.
Miscarriage is private, but is should not be a source of shame. It is sad, but should not destroy hope. It is no one's fault. It is not from sex, hard work, or stress.
Those around the patient want to help but it is hard to know how. I have posted for them too. For a link that will inform all concerned about this common and difficult life event, click here. Please note that this material is medically graphic but appropriate for mature teen and adult audiences.
