Miscarriage is, sadly, an all-too-common event – about one in every four pregnancies ends this way. Another one in 100 pregnancies is ectopic – that is when the pregnancy starts developing in the wrong place, usually in one of the fallopian tubes.

Common or not, most people don’t know much about miscarriage, so you’re not alone if you have lots of questions and are hoping to find answers here.

We will do our best to provide information to help you make sense of what is happening, what has happened so far and what might still happen. We hope that this will help you cope with your pregnancy loss (or threatened loss) and to plan for the future.
