Miscarriage is a term for the natural end of a pregnancy at a stage where the embryo or fetus is incapable of surviving independently, generally prior to 20 weeks of gestation.
Miscarriage is a common type of pregnancy loss, according to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG). Studies reveal that anywhere from 10-25% of all clinically recognized pregnancies will end in miscarriage, with most occuring in the first 13 weeks of pregnancy. It is beneficial to be informed about miscarriage, in the unfortunate event that you find yourself or someone you know facing one.
