How can you recover from a miscarriage?

ANSWER

It's common to feel sad after losing a pregnancy. Many couples feel the grief of losing a child, so allow yourself time to grieve. Consider joining a support group where you can talk about your experience and feelings with others who have had a miscarriage. If you can, let family and friends know that you need their support, tell them what they can do, and rely on their help.

Keep in mind that there's a good chance that you will give birth to a healthy baby in the future. Only about 20% of women who have had a miscarriage have another miscarriage the next time they get pregnant.
