We understand how a miscarriage can turn your world upside down, causing profound grief for you and your partner, as well as for your family and friends. It also can create fears about future pregnancies.
Among women who know they are pregnant, about 10 to 15 out of 100 pregnancies end in miscarriage. Most miscarriages happen in the first trimester or 13 weeks of pregnancy. Second-trimester miscarriage happens in just 1 to 5 out of 100 pregnancies.
Your Mercy care team is here to help you through a miscarriage and give you hope. Our doctors, fertility specialists and fetal care experts collaborate with counselors and wellness experts to help you conceive, carry and deliver a healthy baby.
