Miscarriage is a term for a pregnancy loss within 20 weeks. Rates of miscarriage are confusing, and the most widely accepted statistic is that 10-15% of clinically recognized pregnancies result in a loss. This number is likely much higher if you include pregnancies that miscarry before being clinically recognized. A common theme when examining miscarriage rates is that they vary greatly when looking at other factors like smoking or maternal age. This episode provides an overview of miscarriage, warning signs, treatment, recovery, prevention, and coping with the loss of a baby.
