Molar pregnancy

Molar pregnancy can be extremely distressing.  There is no right or wrong way to feel but many people say that it is very upsetting, confusing and sometimes frightening.

Some common feelings are:

I thought nothing could be more devastating than losing a baby, until a month later when they told me it was a partial molar pregnancy.

I searched it on the internet and saw things about chemotherapy and was just so scared.

Jade talks about her experience of molar pregnancy here.  And there are two more personal stories below.


Molar pregnancy can be a very difficult experience to go through.  It can feel like a series of blows: first a miscarriage, then a diagnosis of molar pregnancy and the anxieties that go along with it, and then the period of follow-up.

It can feel as if you are stuck, that you can’t move on and begin to recover from your loss.  And that’s especially true if you have to wait longer than you want before trying again.

Whatever your feelings and anxieties, you don’t have to bear them alone.  Please see details here of where you can find support from others who will understand.
