Sadly, pregnancy loss occurs with great frequency. Approximately 30% of all conceptions will end in a loss, most often during the first trimester. Women struggling with infertility tend to be at a higher risk for miscarriage, and those of you who are undergoing in vitro fertilization may experience a profound loss if embryos fail to implant after the transfer. Whenever it occurs, pregnancy loss is devastating and often leaves parents feeling grief stricken, numb and empty.
Unlike with other losses, pregnancy loss often goes unrecognized by others and parents often feel alone in their pain. Sometimes the sadness is overwhelming and unremitting, and coping with day to day life becomes difficult.
