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.

Colette talks about her experience of a partial molar pregnancy here, and Sarah, JB, Kayleigh and Jade share their stories too.

Your feelings after a molar pregnancy

Some common feelings are:

Shock and confusion

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.

Fear and anxiety

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

Loss and grief

Feeling ‘in limbo’ and unable to move on

Getting support after a molar pregnancy

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.  You might find it helpful to contact our staffed helpline or to join our online forum, whihc has a dedicated board for molar pregnancy.  You’ll find more details here of where you can find support from others who will understand.
