Pregnancy- The Life After Miscarriage!

Apr 3, 2008
Miscarriages are not uncommon, especially for first time mothers or women over the age of thirty-five. There is hope though, just because a couple has miscarried does not mean that they'll miscarry again in the future, or that they will be unable to have children. Oftentimes miscarriage is the result of birth defects beyond a doctor's control. While the more miscarriages a mother endures, the higher her chances rise of miscarrying again, all hope is not lost. With the advent of new medicines and knowledge, a woman can increase her chances of carrying to full term.

Many women over the age of thirty-five are able to carry a baby full-term without any problems. Oftentimes a physician is able to tell if a woman is at risk for miscarrying and steps can be taken to increase the chances of a full 40 week gestation. Bed rest is often prescribed at the slightest indication of problems, and medications are also available to assist pregnancy. If a mother feels at risk for miscarriage for whatever reason, all options can and should be discussed with the attending physician.

Miscarriage happens to 20% of all pregnancies, so it's important for a mother to not lose hope when miscarriage occurs. After proper time to grieve, a couple can discuss with their physician options for increasing their chances of trying to get pregnant and carrying to full term. It's important for a mother to take care of her health when both pregnant and trying to conceive.

Drug, cigarette, and alcohol use can all contribute to miscarriage, as can extreme stress or physical labor. This, however, is a fine line, as exercise can do nothing but benefit a pregnant mommy; it's essential to discuss with a doctor any potential risks involved with exercise; there are also many low-intensity exercises available for pregnant women designed to reap the benefits of exercise without over-exertion.

Taking folic acid when trying to conceive is also another great way to decrease the chances of spinal bifida or other neurological disorders often associated with miscarriage. One miscarriage is not indicative of more to come; it's important to understand that miscarriages are often a result of embryonic or fetal abnormalities that are out of both mother and doctor's control.

Miscarrying is a painful loss for a couple to bear; seeking out the support of a group either online or in a local city can provide a great outlet for pain. Be sure to take the proper time to grieve, and when the time is right in the future, do not hesitate to talk with a physician about increasing the chances of a full term pregnancy the next time around.
