Miscarriage and Pregnancy Loss

October 9, 2019

Miscarriage is both fairly common (occurring in somewhere between 15 and 25% of pregnancies) and under-discussed. Since October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month, Kristen Sharp joined the Women's Healthcast to talk about miscarriage and pregnancy loss.

Dr. Sharp leads the UW Health Hope After Loss clinic, where she supports patients experiencing pregnancy or infant loss, or preparing for a pregnancy following a loss. She talked about how common miscarriage and pregnancy loss are, what we understand about the causes, the complex landscape of grief following a pregnancy loss, and important advice for health care teams – as well as family and friends – supporting people through pregnancy loss.
