Miscarriage: A common experience, a private pain

[MPR News, March 13, 2019] Miscarriages are sad, private events, difficult to talk about. But they are not rare; a study reports they occur in 10 to 20 percent of pregnancies. Given how common they are, experts believe that open and honest dialogue about miscarriages can help mothers and partners grieve.

“Grief is very personal. It is experienced differently by different people, but there are a lot of common threads,” said Annette Klein, a registered nurse. She leads a pregnancy and infant loss support group at Allina Health. She joined other experts to discuss miscarriage on MPR News.
