bell1Have you or a loved one experienced a miscarriage?
You are NOT alone. 10-25% of pregnancies end in miscarriage, by no fault of the mother.

Most miscarriages are caused by a genetic abnormality.  In this case, the miscarriage is not the mother’s fault.  The most a mother/parents can do is prepare for a healthy pregnancy: good nutrition, regular exercise, stress management, and no smoking, drug use, or alcohol.

This website is a compilation of facts, stories, and resources to inform on the topic of miscarriages as well as to assist in the coping process of those that have lost their beloved child.

May this place be a haven of support for mothers, parents, family, and friends that have all been affected.
