The following pages provide links to other resources relating to pregnancy loss and pregnancy-related problems. We hope that you will find them of use.
The links below will open in a new tab to external sites. The site you move to may contain images of babies and pregnancy which you might find upsetting at this time.
The Miscarriage Association is not and cannot be held responsible for the accuracy or quality of material in linked resources, nor do we necessarily share views or opinions expressed. New sites appear every day, largely unchecked and unregulated and it can be difficult to assess their value. The Miscarriage Association will do its best to avoid links to sites which are clearly inaccurate, biased, product-linked or potentially offensive.
Do remember that different countries may have different definitions of miscarriage, use different terminology and offer differing care, investigations or treatment. Similarly there are likely to be inconsistencies between the advice and information given by different health professionals or other information providers. U.S. sites are at the end of this list.
