Sadly, approximately one fifth of pregnancies ends in miscarriage, often in the first three months. While most women go on to have a successful pregnancy, the experience can be very traumatic.
It is common to experience feelings such as grief, loss, guilt, anger or depression when dealing with the shock and sadness of a miscarriage. People grieve in different ways, and for different lengths of time. For some it can be helpful in coming to terms with the experience to talk to someone outside of the situation.
At the Crossway Pregnancy Crisis Centre, we have trained listeners who can offer emotional support during a difficult time. If you would like to talk, ring our helpline on 020 8892 8483 or email us to arrange a call or visit.
If you live further afield, see the links alongside for organisations that can provide support. Alternatively, you can speak to your GP who should be able to offer you support and advice.
