Pregnancy Loss

Pregnancy loss can be an overwhelming experience. Pregnancy-Info provides you with helpful, reliable resources on how to cope with pregnancy loss.

Learn more about what causes miscarriage, what it means for future pregnancies, how to cope with your grief over the loss, and how to move on to a successful pregnancy.  

The good news is your miscarriage most likely occurred not because of anything you did (so you don't have to feel guilty) and most women who experience a miscarriage then go on to have perfectly normal, healthy and successful pregnancies. 


Learn about different types of miscarriage, including recurrent miscarriage and blighted ovum. Here you'll also find information on common miscarriage symptoms and on what factors increase the risk of miscarriage.  If you feel as though your miscarriage is due to medical negligence and you should be compensated for this, a lawyer will be able to guide you.

Did you know that your morning cup of coffee is increasing your risk of pregnancy loss? Also learn to see the signs that something might be wrong with a pregnancy and find out how you can tell the difference between normal bleeding during pregnancy and signs of a miscarriage.  

Grieving Your Loss

Grieving is an important part of coping with pregnancy loss. There are ways to honor the memory of your child as well as tips on how to cope emotionally after losing your baby.  Giving your baby a name or having a memorial service for your baby may help you to cope with your loss and begin the grieving process.

You may also need to take some time off from work to mourn your baby. Find out how to break the news to friends, family and co-workers about the loss of your pregnancy.  Also read up on when it is time to seek counseling to deal with your grief and to get the tools you need to move on past this terrible loss.

Pregnancy after miscarriage may seem like a long ways off, but eventually many couples are ready for this step. Learn about how you and your partner can prepare yourselves for pregnancy after losing a child.  

Many couples find their next pregnancy very nerve racking as they are always afraid that they will loose this next baby too.  Learn more about how to relax and ease your fears.  You may want to consider renting a baby heart beat monitor for your home so that you can listen to your baby's heart beat any time you want. 

While support is often given to women after experiencing a miscarriage, often times men feel unable to truly mourn the loss of their baby. Find out about typical feelings men experience after miscarriage as well as advice on grieving and how to rebuild your relationship after miscarriage in our Men and Miscarriage section. Although men many not show their emotions as much as women do, they are also grieving this loss. Find out more about how to cope with a miscarriage as a man.


Stillbirth can be a devastating type of pregnancy loss. Learn the differences between a stillbirth and a miscarriage and about the causes of stillbirth as well as warning signs that can help detect a stillbirth.

Also find out more about how to prevent this horrible pregnancy loss and about how to cope if you loose your baby in this way. Stillbirths can be a much more devasting experience than a miscarriage.

Learn more about how to minimize this risk and about what to do if you or someone you know experiences this terrible loss.
