    Early Pregnancy Loss: Miscarriage and Molar Pregnancy, American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists:"A normal pregnancy is about 40 weeks. The loss of a pregnancy before 20 weeks is called early pregnancy loss. Often, the loss is a miscarriage (sometimes called spontaneous abortion by doctors). A rare form of pregnancy loss is molar pregnancy. The loss of a pregnancy—no matter how early—involves more than the loss of a fetus. For many women, miscarriage also results in feelings of loss and grief. This pamphlet explains: Some causes of early pregnancy loss Signs and symptoms of pregnancy loss What to expect after the loss."

    Miscarriage, American Pregnancy Association:"Spontaneous abortion (SAB), or miscarriage, is the term used for a pregnancy that ends on it's own, within the first 20 weeks of gestation. The medical name spontaneous abortion (SAB) gives many women a negative feeling, so throughout this article we will refer to any type of spontaneous abortion or pregnancy loss under 20 weeks as miscarriage. Miscarriage is the most 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. Chemical pregnancies may account for 50-75% of all miscarriages. This occurs when a pregnancy is lost shortly after implantation, resulting in bleeding that occurs around the time of her expected period. The woman may not realize that she conceived when she experiences a chemical pregnancy."

    Environmental Causes Of Infertility And Miscarriage:"Avoiding these circumstances will improve the odds of fertility and conception and decrease miscarriage risk by reducing "wear and tear" on the genes that control the reproductive processes. Evidence also included demonstrates the same chemicals causing infertility and miscarriage are being identified as increasing the risk for having a child with mental retardation, learning disabilities or behavior problems (such as A.D.D.)."

    The Mystery of Miscarriage, © 1996 Judyth Reichenberg-Ullman, N.D., M.S.W. and Robert Ullman, N.D.:"I never would have guessed I would have had even one miscarriage, much less four in four years . My health has always been excellent, my energy high, and my periods every 28 days without fail. I always thought I would know if it were right for me to have a child, and that, if it were, "the right man" would appear."


    Miscarriage, MedlinePlus:"A miscarriage is the spontaneous loss of a fetus before the 20th week of pregnancy. (Pregnancy losses after the 20th week are called preterm deliveries.) A miscarriage may also be called a "spontaneous abortion." This refers to naturally occurring events, not elective or therapeutic abortion procedures, which a woman may choose to have done. Other terms for the early loss of pregnancy include: Missed abortion (a loss of pregnancy where the products of conception do not exit the body) Incomplete abortion (not all of the products of conception exit the body) Complete abortion (all of the products of conception exit the body) Threatened abortion (symptoms indicate a miscarriage is possible) Inevitable abortion (the symptoms cannot be stopped, and a miscarriage will happen) Infected abortion."

    Miscarriage, Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:"Miscarriage or spontaneous abortion is the natural or spontaneous end of a pregnancy at a stage where the embryo or the fetus is incapable of surviving, generally defined in humans at a gestation of prior to 20 weeks. Miscarriage is the most common complication of early pregnancy.[1] The medical term "spontaneous abortion" is used in reference to miscarriages because the medical term "abortion" refers to any terminated pregnancy, deliberately induced or spontaneous, although in common parlance it refers specifically to active termination of pregnancy."

    Mommies Enduring Neonatal Death (M.E.N.D.):"Although all of us come from different backgrounds and have different stories to tell, but we all went through the same initiation which made us members of this "club." My desire for this ministry is as those of us know the suffering of losing a precious baby to miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant death, we join together to uplift and support one another. And I pray "...that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God". (2 Corinthians 1:4)"
