To be pregnant is one of the many blessings every woman is praying for. The time a pregnancy test kit would show two clear straight red lines on it, then a woman is surely on cloud nine.
However, our friends at Pregnancytips.org tell us that as many as 25 percent of all pregnancies result in miscarriage. That is a huge number, and many times, miscarriages occur before women even know that they are pregnant in the first place. The vast majority of the time, there is absolutely nothing a woman could have done differently to prevent or avoid a miscarriage. The fetus not developing normally is the number one cause of miscarriage, but there are so many different reasons why this can occur. Usually, however, miscarriages are caused by random problems with how the cells divide or how the embryo split. Sometimes a woman’s medical conditions or lifestyle choices can contribute to miscarriage, but for the most part, it is just something that happens, and it happens a lot. It’s important for women to keep in mind that just because they have had a miscarriage, doesn’t mean that it is their fault or that they have done anything wrong at all. Miscarriage can be a very emotionally traumatic time for a woman to go through, and she should seek a counselor or therapist if she feels that she is having a hard time dealing with her pregnancy loss.
