Viewers of ITV’s ‘Coronation Street’ will be aware that this evening’s episode will continue Monday’s storyline of a threatened miscarriage, 23 weeks into the pregnancy.
Credit is due to the programme’s researchers, who worked very hard to get all the details right, consulting us at the M.A. as well as SANDS. The team has also ensured that their helpline provides contact details for both charities.
But greater credit goes to actor Kym Marsh for playing a role that so sadly mirrors her personal experience of second trimester loss. It is a real testament to her that she wants to ensure that more people understand what it means to lose a baby in pregnancy, as noted here.
We talk about the emotional impact of late loss here. Our leaflet on late miscarriage provides information about both the facts and the feelings of this deeply distressing experience. And the Late Loss section of our forum is a very special place for sharing experiences and support.
