A miscarriage is the loss of a baby before the 20th week of pregnancy. According to the March of Dimes, as many as 50% of all pregnancies may end in miscarriage, most often before a woman even knows she is pregnant. About 15% of known pregnancies end in a miscarriage. Most miscarriages happen because the baby was not healthy. Having a miscarriage can be hard for a woman, both physically and emotionally. But just because you have a miscarriage doesn't mean you can't have a healthy baby.
