    Coronavirus and miscarriage: your care

    On this page, we share information on how the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is impacting access to hospital services for those who are pregnant or experiencing a miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy or molar pregnancy and current advice for those thinking about trying to conceive.

    Worried about pregnancy loss?

    If you’re concerned you may be showing signs of pregnancy loss then this section is here to help you.

    Miscarriage

    Miscarriage is the most common kind of pregnancy loss, affecting around one in four pregnancies. You’ll find lots of information about miscarriage in this section.

    Ectopic pregnancy

    Ectopic pregnancy can be a very distressing and frightening experience. You can find out more here.

    Molar pregnancy

    Molar pregnancy can be a very distressing experience. It’s also a type of pregnancy loss that most people have never heard of, so it can be difficult to get the information and support you need.

    For health professionals

    Most health professionals work hard to provide good and sensitive care – and many of them will have been through pregnancy loss themselves. We work to support them by providing learning resources and through consultancy.

    Miscarriage and the workplace

    Most workplaces have staff who have been or may be affected by miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy or molar pregnancy. But many employees don’t know their rights and employers rarely have policies in place to help. Managers are not always clear on their responsibilities and colleagues may not know what to say. We have created this resource hub to help everyone involved.

    Leaflets

    As well as the text on this website, we publish a range of leaflets about the facts and feelings of miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy and molar pregnancy. We also provide a link to a list of other useful publications and to other connected websites.
