Based on the current evidence, if you factor in fertilized eggs that fail to implant along with pregnancies that end in miscarriage, around 70% to 75% of all conceptions will end in pregnancy loss. This statistic is sobering. But it means that if you already know that you’re pregnant, your odds of carrying your baby to term are good.

Miscarriage is a word used to describe the early loss of a pregnancy before 20 weeks of pregnancy. It usually happens in the first trimester. Unfortunately, between 10 and 15 percent of known. Miscarriage, which is the spontaneous loss of a pregnancy before 20 weeks, is one of those life events that tends to be so profoundly sad and confusing for people to make sense of that it becomes hush-hush.And that, in turn, often leads to a sense of deep isolation for women and couples struggling to come to terms with pregnancy loss despite the fact that it is extremely common. On average, 10 to 25 percent of all pregnancies result in miscarriage.

Around 1 per cent of couples are affected by recurrent miscarriage, which in the UK is defined as the loss of three or more consecutive pregnancies. Emma Benjamin has had several miscarriages, too, but still remembers the terror of the first. “They just sent me home and they didn’t tell me anything,” she says.

This is because it’s difficult to determine how many miscarriages take place. In the UK, miscarriage means the loss of a pregnancy during the first 23 weeks (any later and it is called stillbirth). But it often occurs before a woman even realises she’s pregnant, and most of the time – 85 per cent – it is in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy.

  • Thank you so so so much for sharing this video. I just had my first experience with pregnancy and had a miscarriage at 7 weeks. I have been very upset and so grief stricken. This video really helps me to better understand everything and answered so many questions.
    Thank you

  • Miscarriges and increasing infertility. The worst situations one ever had to face. Anxiety is definitely the after effect if both of them. Thank you for sharing this video. It will help many people out there. Keep sharing more such stuff. Love and luck to all out there. Stay strong and positive.

  • Yeses! He is coming with many of the facts. yeah? I’ve also had MC before. Now, I’m undergoing surrogacy this year at a repro center in Kiev. Because, many times cases are different. I’m one of them. Wishes needed! xx

  • hey, I opened this link and I watch it till the end. Really it works for me. They have explained useful tips. That tips I was unknown to them. so thank you so much for sharing such a useful information. Stress is like a disease. Until you don’t get remedy you can’t recover. Hope so you will have made similar kind of videos in future.

  • Hi there. I hope you are doing fine. This is a very informative video. It provides very valuable information. These issues are common among us when we suffer from such losses or incidents. I think this video will help a lot when people go through such times. Good work. Thank you.

  • I had a chemical pregnancy then got pregnant with my now 3 year old daughter and that pregnant was complicated. I had an SCH and then ppromed at 35 weeks and had to go ahead and give birth and had a 2 week NICU stay. I’m pregnant again and so worried about miscarrying or pproming again.

  • My mother had a miscarriage before i was born,though i never personally knew it,i still hate the loss my mother felt, and oftenly visited it’s grave with my grandparents. I look up to my mother for pushing through that loss,had she not,i wouldn’t even be here.

  • You are very lucky to be pregnant after infertility. I am TTC from past 10 years but has no luck. Doctors can’t tell me the reason behind my infertility. I have been through extensive testing but had no luck with conceiving. Now i have gave upon getting pregnant. I have decided to go for surrogacy. As there is no other hope for me to have a baby now.

  • After my miscarriage the Reproductive endocrinologist told us we needed to wait at least 3 cycles before trying again. Why is it necessary to wait?

  • Well, what can I say? This is truly hard for someone to overcome this. Still, the people who do that are great. I am so motivated by these people. It’ really great of them. I am happy to watch this video.

  • This is such an amazing video! Thank you so much for all your efforts. As a psychologist, this is a great help. Motivation is really essential. The person gets deeply depressed after such things. They need support they need attention and they need someone to listen to them. Hats off!

  • In 1993 I got pregnant while on birth control pills that I took the correct way. At 20 weeks 4 days I started bleeding. I went to my OB doctor and they did an ultrasound, with the screen pointed where I could see it, and he said “There is no heartbeat” and then told me to get dressed and a nurse would be in soon. The nurse came in and handed me a small cup and instructed me to put the miscarriage in it and bring it back to them. Nobody explained anything, nobody helped console me (and I was crying really hard) OR acted like it was okay to be upset!!! 2 days later I started cramping and bleeding heavily so I went to the ED and was treated like it was nothing to be worried about. This was my 2nd pregnancy and I felt just like I was in labor!! They gave me the option to have a DnC or going home to wait it out…..they told me AFTER the procedure I was carrying a girl and it was 20 weeks gestation. I received NO emotional support OR explanation!!!! I still have nightmares about this loss and it was VERY traumatic!!!!

  • What a video. I really like it. It includes a lot of information and motivation. Seriously, it is very helpful to get out of this situation. People become so frustrated after their failure. They scared of past failures. I think it is part of life. We should move on. And your video is giving us a great lesson how to deal with it.
    My appreciation

  • Thank you for sharing this video. It is really informative. Infertility is really a hard thing to face. MCs, take a lot from a woman. I am also an infertile lady. I defeat my infertility by surrogacy. It is like a miracle. It really helps. It is like a blessing for the people like us. I just love this.

  • I always hated when people said miscarriage is just like a heavy period. I was 6 weeks when I had a miscarriage. I woke up at 3am with strong contractions. Not as painful as labor but still nowhere near “period cramps” I stood up out of bed and blood hit the floor. I knew exactly what was happening and knew there was no stopping it. The contractions lasted hours until i saw tissue pass then it all stopped. I was depressed for weeks… My baby would be due next week. But now my baby is due in january. Another baby girl <3

  • The sentence that got me through my early MC is: «I can get pregnant, it just wasn’t the right time now.» And also the fact that many many women experience MC at some point, sometimes without knowing they were pregnant. It’s not a very happy or positive thought, but it feels comforting to know that you’re not alone, even tho you don’t want it to happen to anyone. ❤️ I am 20+2 weeks pregnant with a healthy baby girl now, I am very thankful. ������

  • I loved listening about the mind body group. I am sure it would be so helpful for so many woman ot there. As the doctor said it makes you feel less alone. People don’t realize that women who are facing infertility or are going through fertility treatments, in how much terror they are. Depression and anxiety are commonly found in such women. I think such programs can really help relieve stress. I hope all those who have opted for IVF it works for you. Good luck!

  • I lost my boy the day before I was due to go in to be induced. My MFM dr told me to be booked in for 37 weeks. I thought awesome can’t wait. My obstetrician was an absolute a hole didn’t even know what type 1 diabetes was. She made me cry during the appointment because I felt like she wasn’t listening. She booked me for 37+4 I was a high risk pregnancy and she booked me for a Saturday even though I argued with her I wanted 37 weeks on the dot. If he was born when I he should have been I would have him in my arms.

  • MC is no doubt a big issue to be concerned about. I have been in conversation with so many women who had MC and are still trying to overcome all those situations. That’s a big deal.

  • Thank you for this. I just miscarried two weeks ago. I’ve been having a lot of pain in my pelvis since then. Can PID cause miscarriage? Can PID be cause by normal vaginal mucus?

  • Hi! hope you are in good health. infertility can be very hard to deal with. I have also been there. It tears you down both emotionally and physically. People needs as much inspiration as they can get. Thanks for sharing this video.

  • Hi, Hope you are doing well. Thanks for sharing an informative video. I am glad i found it. Many of us suffered from depression after a miscarriage or infertility. I also went through this phase. I had 3 miscarriage and also an infertile. I am gonna share it with my friends. Hope this video will also help them.

  • I have had multiple miscarriages and an ectopic. My ectopic pregnancy wasn’t discovered until around 10 weeks when the pain got so severe I kept going to the ER and they finally did an ultrasound. I was so sure that pregnancy would be healthy because my hcg levels were rising so much better but unfortunately that wasn’t the case.

  • Hey. Thanks for sharing such an informative video. It would be helpful to many couples facing infertility. I know It’s so hard to deal with miscarriage and infertility. I was also Infertile due to cervix incompetence disease. I chose surrogacy as the solution of my Infertility. I am so happy today that i made the right decision. I hope it would help others too. keep sharing this stuff. Stay blessed.

  • You should do a video with Raw beauty Kristy. She has had fertility issues for years and was told she would never get pregnant and she became pregnant a few months ago totally out of no where. I would love to see your reaction to tell her husband she was pregnant, I cried my eyes out watching it.

  • Hey. Hope you are doing fine. Thank you for sharing such video. It would definitely help others too. I can feel how anxious it is to face miscarriages. I was so depressed after my 3 miscarriages. It was hurtful to lose my 3 unborn babies. this would really help a woman facing miscarriages. I chose surrogacy for me. I am so happy that I chose it.

  • I’m from japan.We especially moved to Europe for surrogacy purpose.Than we came to know about this clinic and we moved to Ukraine.There we contacted this clinic.With the help of this clinic we have our two beautiful twin daughters.We are so thankful to the clinic that i can’t tell you.And to the surrogate mother too who gave us so much happiness.We will never forget the clinic and the surrogate mother.

  • Prior to the full term birth of my son I had 2 1st trimester miscarriages and 3 2nd trimester preterm with neonatal death. The first time I saw Spontaneous Abortion on my medical record I lost it. My Dr explained that if was the medical term for a miscarriage but still I was so upset. My wonderful Dr marked those words out and put miscarriage instead.

  • Hello. Thank you so much for sharing this informative video. It’s full of some really important information. I’m so glad I came across it. This will help so many people. You’re doing a great job. Amazing work!

  • Hi there, thanks for sharing valuable information. I agree with you infertility is not as simple and smooth as we feel. There is lot of tension and anxiety, this could be due to excitement and burden. It’s always better to talk about what are you going through and seek help when ever is needed.

  • This video is very good. Because this case is common in ladies. They get depressed. And feels anxiety. I am also feeling the same because I am also infertile. This video must be shared with everyone. Thanks.

  • Hi, my sister was pregnant approx 12 weeks and wears a mask often for her line of work as a nurse. Wearing a mask decreases oxygen intake within the body plus breathing in CO2. Would you consider either of these as factors in a miscarriage? Not seeing this discussed anywhere, but my heart says there is a connection/link between the two. Thank you in advance for your perspective.

  • Now at the age of 43 i am married again to someone else and we want a baby of our own.

    I know at this age it is quite difficult to have a baby off my own womb.

    Thinking of previous complications regarding pregnancy i would not try to be pregnant again.

    From my last marriage i had many complications regarding pregnancy.

    I don’t have any other options left so far so surrogacy is the only solution to my problems i guess.

    My husband agreed for surrogacy so i started looking for clinics with good surrogacy records.

    I founded many clinics regarding surrogacy and i picked up the few clinics too for further discussion with them.

  • Well, yes! That’s really knowledge able and expertise. I’ve already followed him on the T.V. So, yeah! My obstetrician has referred me for an IVF at a center in Kiev, due to my PCOS, Some people just can’t have it the normal way. So, no issues! xx

  • Hey. What an amazing video. Full of interesting information. You must be appreciated for your efforts. Helping people overcome anxiety during this phase is a great cause. Many of the females suffer from anxiety after miscarriage or knowing about their infertility which turns into depression. I hope they find some solutions to overcome it through this video. I hope to see more such videos from you. All the best!

  • You people are bringing a great awareness. Great work for great cause. Depression and anxiety is so real during infertility. Dr. Alice is doing great work. It is important that she understands her patient. Doing work for both men and women. appreciation!

  • I wish I would have know about you, when I had my miscarriage at 10-13 weeks along. It’s so hard because my doctor pretty much told me it was my fault. And I sobbed like a baby when you said “you aren’t broken” ������

  • Expectation you are doing fine. Much gratitude to you for sharing such video. It would help other people as well. I can feel that it is never easy to face miscarriages. My sister had a miscarriage after 16 weeks. She was so broken. Then she faced infertility. This would truly help a lady confronting premature deliveries. She picked surrogacy for me. She is happy to the point that I picked it.

  • It’s rare that someone acknowledges the mental pain that those that go through abortion suffer silently. Thank you for doing that in a way that doesn’t judge.

  • The pain control section got me! I was sent home with a printout of how it’s safe to miscarry at home. Needless to say, a week later I was at the emergency room bleeding out! My best friend took me who is gay. He was a champ but between him and the male nurse, it was an experience! Between my friend saying I’m not sure I’m doing this right and the nurse (also a gay man) saying we gotta double things up you are bleeding so much (made me freak out worse). Thankfully when the Dr came in he brought a female nurse to help with the DNC. She was awesome and just held my hand and let me cry. Even though I knew I was going to miscarry it still was extremely emotional!

  • Everyone knows about the emotional pain, of a miscarriage no matter the stage, but I wish other OB/GYNs would be more forthcoming about the physical pain. This was a valuable video. In fact many of the videos on this channel would be an excellent addendum to any school curriculum whether virtual or actual school!

  • I have never been blessed with a biological child but have 5 nieces and a nephew, 3 nieces and the nephew are adopted from China. My family, Sheila Woodland-McClain and Scott McClain made a vow with the Chinese’s government to raise the twins in true Chinese American Culture, They are seniors in high school, their Dad says enough of the princess thing! The other 2 are modern day medical miracles, the boy in particular I call my six million dollar man because just getting His adult teeth to come in it took the pediatric dental surgical school team hours to fix! He was a single parent adoption at my sister’s 50th birthday present to Herself!!! I just asked the you tuber group Home Free to come and take Him to our zoo and Thomas Town Land at our amusement park! I said there are 5 spry men who could probably keep up with Him if they are tag teamed! Kia would win all the Olympic track events if you put a bag of Doritos as the finish line prize!

  • Hi. Hope so you are having a good time. This video is very informative. I am just feeling lucky that I just found it. Indeed the case described by you is very common nowadays. We all should watch this video. Appreciate your effort. Keep doing it.

  • I had no idea the statistics were so low for second trimester losses.
    My first two pregnancies were second trimester losses.
    I heard about the MTHFR gene mutations when I was pregnant the third time and changed a a few things to accommodate that mutation and had a healthy pregnancy and baby boy. And another one 20 months later! Have you heard about this mutation?

  • I’ve had 11 miscarriages and 4 live births….it does change u as a person even when u think I dealt w the miscarriages easily…they never did figure out what was wrong until my last child was 10 yrs old. My first miscarriage was 33 yrs earlier! I have RA and Lupus! I remember they told me I tested positive in one area with Lupus but not the other….in my eyes they should have handled me as I did have it. My last 2 children wr extremely difficult with sickness and not just morning sickness, I actually felt like it was poisoning me.
    I lost 4 miscarriages before I had my 1st child…Don’t give up if u really want a child ☺

  • M/cs are quite common these days. I don’t know what is the problem ith this world these days. I cannot understand the reason behind all this. I feel sorry for the people out there who had to face a M/C. Sending love and power to you. Stay strong and blessed. Baby dust on your way. More power to you.

  • This was such an amazing video. Thank you. It was also very nice to see a more clinical side to you and your bedside manner that hasn’t really translated as well in your other videos as this delicate topic.
    In light of this delicacy and yet well placed knowledge, do you have any recommendations for survivors of sexual assault/trauma: IE is it easier for the doctor/office staff if a patient were to disclose that information upon first visit? Are there any special steps that you take for that situation that you would suggest talking over with one’s doctor before/during an examination? Aside from visiting and talking with a counselor, are there any other steps or suggestions you would have to those who may need to visit an ob/gyn following this type of situation?

  • I was pregnant with twins and miscarried one. That was all I could say for 13 almost 14 years now but after watching your videos before this one even came out I was finally able to sit down with my Mom and explain the pain and also the all encompassing fear of losing my daughter who was the other twin. I didn’t thankfully. She 12 now. I was never able to carry another baby to term and I stopped trying after 3 more miscarriages. Thank you for giving me the courage that I needed to talk to her (my Mom) about this. I spent 13 years pushing the pain as far down as I could but talking through it as difficult as it was helped me work through a very difficult time that now doesn’t hurt to think about quite so much anymore. Thank you for all you do for woman age woman’s health!

  • I had a miscarriage 2 years ago. The doctor could see the baby but it was not in the sac. I lost the baby later that night…. But until today the doc couldn’t tell me what happened. How it happened

  • I had a “missed miscarriage” and I will never forget that term. Active duty females have very high miscarriage numbers, I always thought maybe if I didn’t run, maybe if I didn’t do this or the other then it wouldn’t of happened.:(

  • I had a miscarriage in Nov of 2012. Even after having a now 3 almost 4 yr old son I still have times where I’ll break down and cry and hurt for the loss of my baby even after it’s been almost 8 years. I still remember every moment of it and how much physical and emotional pain I was and still feel to this day. I still think back to what was happening in my life and the things that I had done or what was going on in my life as to what had caused me to have a miscarriage. What had me curious to watch this was the mention of the actual extreme physical pain that I went through and after watching other videos others didn’t seem to be in as much pain as I had gone through. I was in so much pain I couldn’t sit up and would curl up in a ball when the extreme sharp pains would come and go. It was 8-12 hours of non stop come and go pain.

    What also was hard and painful for me is that my sister was also pregnant and she ended up having a beautiful baby boy. I was happy for her as well as upset and in more emotional pain helping her through her whole pregnancy even though I had lost mine. I had to in a way hold back on some of my emotional issues so that I wouldn’t let my family know that I was hurting as much as I was while helping my sister.
    So Idk if that’s one reason I have time on which I feel more upset and feel the loss of my baby more.
    Watching this video has helped me with some unanswered questions in which I have had for years and I’m thankful for it.
    For all the woman going through this you are not alone and know we love you and to stay strong and keep your head held high.

  • Thank you for validating that a chemical pregnancy is actually a miscarriage. I had 15 of them before finally having a hysterectomy and oopherectomy due to adenomyosis, endometriosis, huge fibroids and endometriomas. Hearing “Well, at least it’s not a real miscarriage” is a major slap in the face to the person suffering those losses.

  • Oh my God,Thanks for this video. Nowadays I am watching these videos as being infertile am looking for treatments. YouTube is helping me alot. Keep on sharing these videos. God bless us all.

  • I just had a miscarriage. A cruel twist of fate. We got to hear and see the heartbeat and then the next week it was gone. I suffered from a subchorionic hemorrhage that just got too big. ��

  • Thank you for posting this video! I watched this when it first was posted just out of curiosity. about a month later I found out I was pregnant and miscarried a few weeks later. This video kept coming to mind and was super helpful during the entire process. You are the best!

  • This is a very sensitive topic. Women get into depression and anxiety after a loss. It is something you cannot control. It is such a great shock. It is very important to handle it with care. These things should not be taken as a joke. Thank you for making this video. It was much needed.

  • We’ve been ttcing for 7 yrs. We had 2 ivf cycles. The first one failed and the 2nd ended up with mc. We’re about to start ivf with de. I’m very excited but at the same time, I’m so sad… I still can’t get over the mc. I’m nervous and scared because we’ll have only one try with de. If it fails, I don’t know how I’ll cope… I’m really struggling with others’ pregnancies and I can’t handle it. I’m working SO hard on my positive attitude… But that doesn’t take away the hurt especially when I see others have what I lost and have it so easily. I have to put on this mask in order to be able to deal with it. I’ve tried opening up to my mom about it when I meltdown after finding out someone close to me is pregnant. I get the feeling that she is tired of my “pity party” and she wants me to move on. So I’ve just stopped talking about my pain with her. DH is understanding and very sensitive, but I don’t want to bother him as he works so hard to save money so we could have all the treatments. My girlfriends? All of them are having kids/expecting. I’ve heard so many people be like “Just be happy for them”. But it’s deeper than that! I am thankful that we are ttc again. I’m thankful we can have another ivf. At the same time, this whole ttc journey and pg women everywhere is depressing me.

  • you should do one about abortion and the mothers choice. and how it affects the mother the exact same way. even if they CHOOSE to get one done.

  • Thanks for this video it is helpful. One thing i would add though is that it is helpful if you do a bloodwork. I had a miscarriage and the fact that they said that didn’t do any test was not helpful for me. I felt like did i do something wrong or is there something healthwise going on. Luckily my doctor listen to me and did blood work on vit d and thyroid because both can be a factor in having a miscarriage. They found that my vit d was super low and i had an thyroid infection
    I think that its good tot test if someone asks it because it will at least give you peace of mind that it isn’t something you did. And why wait for a second time to do it when maybe if you do It the first time you can prevent a second time at least in some cases

  • I am really happy that you’re covering this! But I misunderstood the meaning of “pain” in the thumbnail title. I thought this video might address why it is so emotionally painful to have a miscarriage so that others who have not had the experience might understand and would be better able to support those who have. I have looked all this information up myself after my miscarriage. I know the facts and I don’t blame myself for miscarrying. Those aspects of miscarriage are not enough to discuss it fully. I guess what I was looking for was a doctor to say, “You are grieving because you lost your baby.”

    On a side note… and just… as a gentle critique this video feels like it has a slight (highlight slight!) rush to get over a miscarriage and find hope for another pregnancy. Yes this was what I wanted to know after miscarrying, but I would have liked more of an emphasis placed on processing what happened first.

  • MDJ why do some women’s bodies, who experience miscarriage, seem to allow the miscarriage happen naturally and then me, I had to have surgery (twice) in order to “clean” things out?

  • I lost a baby last year, and everyone acted like it was nothing, but it destroyed me for a little while. It was something I needed to talk about and grieve, and I never got a chance because it was such a taboo thing to talk about. It took 6 more cycles and 3 rounds of clomid to concieve again because i pcos and wasn’t ovulating. Although when I do finally ovulate I hyperovulate, so my doctor was kinda wary of using clomid, but I had a singleton pregnancy, and currently hav my rainbow baby sitting on my lap trying to help me type this comment����

  • Thank you for covering the pain. When I had my first missed misscarriage, the dr that I saw refused to give me a D&C when I asked for one. So I asked him what is it going to feel like, his answer was a normal period. I was 13 weeks with growth that stopped at 10 weeks, I hated that man for his answer. 3 days after I left his office I started to miscarry. I went threw 6 days of hours of contractions, usually 7-8 hours a day then it would die off. It hurt worse then when I was induced with my daughter. No pain meds and no other info given me and sent on my merry way.

  • Thanks for that! I am at miscarriage number 2, and I really think breaking the stigma and taking about this is super important for recovery.
    I have educational request for you, @Mama Doctor Jones.
    Here where I live, the medicine is still old school soviet at lots of places. Especially in gynecology, the advice you get is based on research from a lot of years ago (always operate fibroids, always “burn” cervical lesions, etc, etc), so you have to approach every exam with a lot of reading and self preparation.
    I have some deviations in the tests for NK cells, and I see that the topic of NK cells and fertility is still controversial here. Some say that the “standard” treatment is immunotherapy, other say that immunotherapy is still experimental in fertility treatment, and the NK cells participation in recurring miscarriage is not proven yet. Can you (or the internet) give me reliable sources on the topic?

  • Wow such a great video. I am so happy to watch this. Mostly infertile couples go through anxiety and tension. It’s a tough time in females life. Thanks for sharing this video with us.

  • 2012 miscarriage at 10 weeks (the most pain I’ve ever endured, in every sense of the word)
    2013 baby #1 (preemie after eclampsia emergency c-section no complications)
    2015 full-term baby #2 (vbac)
    2016 miscarriage at about 15 weeks (almost no physical pain)
    2017 baby #3 born on due date barely made it to the delivery room, so no meds at all it was less than 2 hours after my first contraction)

    Conclusion:
    It’s totally random!!!!!

  • I just wanted to come to the comment section to tell everyone who’s had a miscarriage that I’m sorry for your loss. Your feelings are valid. The stigma for miscarriage being a taboo topic needs to go away.
    I may have had a pregnancy scare but who knows if it’s what I thought was a period was a miscarriage who knows but my mom has had one and I don’t know if she has healed from it 40+ years later but if she hasn’t then that’s ok. If I have to be realistic with the situation had the pregnancy did work out for my mom the likely chance of me existing would’ve been smaller. Things happen for reasons. I know it may not be clear at all when I want every woman to have the baby they truly want to have. You never have to force yourself to fully heal at all. It’s traumatic. As long as you handle the situation in a way that’s not explosive that risks your life or others. You’re beautiful and as Dr. Jones says you’re not broken.
    Love you all.
    I’m sorry this is longer than I intended.

  • Found your channel and watched this video a few days ago and here I am, having an appointment today to discuss the details of the D&C I now need for baby #3 who didn’t make it past 8 weeks ��

  • I’ve had a stillborn at 32+2weeks gestation…. and it was soul wrenching. She was an accident baby, but still so very wanted. But now that I’m actually trying to get pregnant with my husband…nothing. we have been trying for over 7 months, and we have had no luck… I’m terrified of getting pregnant but I just want to be a mom so badly.

  • This video is really good I’m so glad that miscarriage isn’t less taboo now than it used to be ❤️ I’ve had 6 early losses and still don’t have a baby �� I made it my mission to share my story to help other people xxx

  • Can you please talk about secondary infertility? I have a 5 year old daughter who was conceived the second try. I had her when I was 20 and when she was almost 2 we started to try for a second baby. To this day I have never gotten pregnant again. I did my own research and the condition that fit my symptoms the best is secondary infertility. I did have a consultation with a fertility doctor, and it went horribly. Basically she was condemning me and making me feel like it was all my fault. Needless to say, this has been a very depressing and heartbreaking journey. About 6 month ago I talked with my husband and told him I can’t keep trying because the emotional toll every month was too much. It’s probably the loneliest form of infertility because I have a child but I’m not able to naturally have more. Also, I don’t want any hormone treatments because I don’t like putting unnatural things in my body. I even wait till I’m in horrible pain from a headache or cramps before I take ibuprofen. So I would love to hear what you have to say on this topic and if there is any chance to conceive naturally or if my only chance is hormone treatments. Thank you! Love your channel!

  • Thank you for making this video! After my miscarriage I felt like I had done something wrong, I feared having another miscarriage and when I did become pregnant again I was in pins and needles expecting the worse. I’m glad you addressed this to let women know it’s not their fault and doesn’t increase the chance of miscarrying again.

  • I’m sixty and my grandma had five miscarriages when she adopted my mom. When mom was two months old, grandma got pregnant and had my uncle nine months later. She made it clear who was adopted and who was the real child for the rest of their lives. Sad, huh? Especially since it was my mom who took care of her after my (very cool) grandpa died.

  • Could you discuss Factor V Leiden and it’s effects on pregnancy? Apparently there is a much higher risk of miscarriages / fetal deaths, as well as DVTs in the mother. Why don’t they test all women with multiple miscarriages for Factor V?

  • Thank you for the reminder that my miscarriage wasn’t my fault. it made me teary eyed and I didn’t realize I needed to hear that again <3
    I have been avoiding exercise since my miscarriage over 2 years ago and I think it’s partly due to me exercising during that pregnancy and sub consciously wondering if I pushed too hard and caused it. I always tell myself that’s not true but it helps to hear it from someone like you <3

  • Doctors and nurses need to be more compassionate with miscarriages. When I went to the ER for heavy bleeding and contractions, I was 5 weeks pregnant, the doctor came in and said that I was having a miscarriage and there was nothing they could do (insert cold face). The nurse wanted me to take pain medicine to ease my pain, but I didn’t because I didn’t want to hurt my baby. She kept insisting every few minutes and she got extremely mad that I kept refusing. I got to hear my baby’s heart beat when they did a vaginal ultrasound and the ultrasound nurse said it was a strong healthy heartbeat. It turns out I had a large hemorrhage (they had a specific name for it, but I can’t remember) just outside my son’s aimiotic sack. He is now 3 years old! I was so scared and helpless when the doctor and nurse said I was having a miscarriage. I can only imagine the pain of those of you who have lost a baby. I wish they would had at least tried to be kind about it. My heart goes out to all you Mama’s who have lost a baby. Please be more kind people.

  • I had many miscarriages at 20 weeks and only one at 12 weeks, so when people used to say “you’re past 3 months, I’m sure it will be fine” and didn’t understand my reluctance to tell anyone I was pregnant, even though I was showing, it really bothered me.
    The doctors never really found out why it happened, since I never smoked, don’t drink, was fit and healthy, not under or overweight, and I was in my early twenties for most of the pregnancies, which seemed optimal.
    I had no health complications, neither did my partner, but it happened over and over again and it was devastating, especially because it felt like every TV show and movie showed women going “Two blue lines!” then straight to the birth / baby, without reference at all to miscarriages.

    It is partially this complete lack of discussion about the frequency and commonality of miscarriages, that made my first miscarriage so horrendously traumatic. It had never even entered my head that I might not have my baby after I’d passed the three month stage, and to have the five-month scan and be told there was no heartbeat was horrific.

    I wish people talked about it more because worrying women who are pregnant over something that might not happen, is surely better than completely traumatising the 30% of women that it happens to without any warning, and who think they must have done something wrong or that they are the only ones, because NOBODY talks about it.
    Only once you’ve had miscarriages do others feel they can share their stories, and you realise so many women have had them and that even someone with multiple miscarriages in their history is extremely common.

    The thing that helped me the most was one of those Robert Winston programs where he talked about the miracle of life, and the odds that you have to beat to even be conceived, then to become a viable embryo, then to make it through to birth, etc… It made me realise that any slight hitch in your genetic code or the combining of genes from parents can cause problems that don’t become apparent or life threatening until a certain stage in gestation. It began to feel miraculous that I’d ever even managed to become pregnant, let alone that I had carried those babies to five months and then delivered and held those almost perfect miniature humans at all. It was comforting.

    And for anyone going through a similar thing and wondering desperately if they will be unable to have children… I now have an eighteen year old son, who is perfect. You will almost certainly have a child too, even if they can’t tell you the cause of your miscarriage/s.

  • After 5 losses (2 1st trimester and 3 2nd trimester) my doctor suggested we not try again. During my losses it was found that I had an incompetent cervix, group B strep and pseudomonas causing preterm and antiphospholipid antibody syndrome. These issues led to my losses. My Dr felt he had tried everything. I knew I had at least 1 try left in me. So 10 months later I was pregnant again. My Dr did everything he could think of and even consulted maternal fetal Drs as well as infectious disease Drs. I carried to 37 1/2 weeks and delivered by planned c-section. I can’t say what I would have done had I not carried that pregnancy to term but I’m thankful I took the chance. That little boy is now 22 years old.:)

  • I was positive and excited about my rainbow baby only to miscarry again, so now with the second rainbow baby I feel like not being excited is a good thing and will make it easier if I miscarry for the third time.

  • My first pregnancy was a miscarriage, and all my dr did was say it’s what we call a blighted ovum you can go home and google it and that’s it left the room with me crying ����‍♀️ that’s when I changed drs

  • You have helped me so much! I just want to say thank you! I had horrible experiences with my girly bits Docs my entire life. So I just decided to give up even though I was having periods almost constantly. With only 2-3 in between and I would be violently nauseous, vomit, and have cramps that were more like contractions than cramps but I was so traumatized by all the cruel treatment I had. So I had just decided to grin and bare it. Anyway I found your channel abs it gave me hope that someone would treat me kindly. I went to 5 or 6 and the 6th one was very nice and. Long story short I had top have a hysterectomy. If I hadn’t gone in when I did he said “your very luck we caught this you’re less than a year away from having full blown cervical cancer. Who knows how fast it could have spread especially since you smoke!” So thank you for saving my life!!!

  • I’ve had 7 chemicals, 1 ectopic, and 1 early miscarriage. All doctors and my R.E told me I have “unexplained infertility” because all of mine and hubby’s test come out normal.

  • When I went for my 12 week ultrasound for my eldest, the sonographer found what appeared to be an empty sack. She took measurements. There was no mention of it from my consultant or those on her team. I thenhad pre-eclampsia towards the end of the pregnancy. I’m thinking that an anembryonic failed twin isn’t a likely factor for that.

  • Mine was 18 weeks, with in the 1st year after having my 1st child. The doctor said it was due to 2 things….1being a Type 1 diabetic, 2it was to soon for my body. But I have 3 boys now.

    Does the fact that I have T1D?

  • Few things are natural. You have clearly described your anxiety thing. It is one of the accompanying symptoms of the pregnancy. The video is going to help those who are fighting this anxiety. It is a beautifully described detail. It is not difficult to apprehend. I hope you will post more videos to share your further experiences.

  • I’ve avoided this video because of my own 2 losses. I didn’t know what to expect… but i needed this. I don’t cry often…. but you hit me like a brick wall of reality. I still blame myself, partly because I did have a doctor tell me I killed my baby by smoking before I knew (I had been lucky to have 5 periods a year at that point). My first miscarriage was so traumatic that I didn’t even bother telling anyone about the second one until it was over and I couldn’t take the loneliness anymore. I wish there were more doctors like you out there. I was really lucky to have the doctor I did during the second but she’s moved on. Thank you for your videos and the resources you provide and the compassion you show us.

  • I had my first child in 1987, I just turned 17, It was not under the best circumstances. I got married 2 years later and we conceived rather quickly. I miscarried at 12 weeks. It was such a whirl wind. When I think back about it I tried to dismiss it to my age. The pregnancy started normal. I did not have any morning sickness, it was fall life was good. It started with some spotting, then heavier bleeding and cramps. We went to the hospital and the doctor used the term spontaneous abortion, I was horrified by what it was called. I was admitted, and late the next day when I was all alone I passed the tissue. I honestly do not know what was worse the mental, emotional pain or the physical pain. I managed to call for a nurse who came and tried to clean me up. I was hysterical by what i had witnessed. I was scheduled for a D&C the next morning. To be honest it was so traumatic I don’t remember much about that day. I was in the hospital a few days before I went home. My doctor told me not to try again for 3 months as I had lost a lot of blood. I blamed myself for the miscarriage and I fell into a deep depression. When I went to follow up with my doctor I cried and begged him to give me my baby back. He dealt with it by giving me anti depressants. My husband couldn’t understand why I couldn’t’ just move on and lost his patience with me, and he started to be abusive. It wasn’t long afterwards that I got pregnant again, I was horrified to go through that again. The 3 months had not passed that the doctor recommended so I was worried not only about losing the baby but also my health.

  • I am so grateful to have found this right now. I am currently going through my third miscarriage after having had three successful, non-problematic pregnancies. I am struggling with why it keeps happening. I appreciate this info so much in just trying to wrap my brain around what is happening…but more the last question of do I keep trying was exactly what I was trying to find an answer to. Thank you!

  • I just had a miscarriage 4 1/2 month ago at week 15. I had bleedings since the 8th week and had to stay in bed most of the time. I stayed in hospital when the bleeding got havier and was was told all the time, that a miscarriage was a possible outcome (The first time, after looking down there the gyn in hospital said that she could help me with the abortion as I was bleeding so heavy, but after doing the ultrasound and seeing that the baby was still kicking and jumping she send me home). I went to my gyn or the hospital every other week…. at 15 1/2 weeks I had labor pains (I think that it was labor as it was my first pregnancy) I went into the hospital. She was still alive and kicking as the placenta came out and died after the cord was cut. That was really hard seeing her die. I would have prefered that she had died in my belly. There was nothing I or anyone could have done to save her. I had hoped to carry her at least to the 24th week. But sadly that was not possible. Just two days bevor miscarriage we had found out that she was a baby girl. I hope we can get pregnant again we tried for a year last time before it happend. I know that I did everything in my power but its still hard. Expecially other ppl who don’t even think when they talk. They don’t mean to hurt you but thinks they say are often constant reminders of your miscarriage.

  • Can you talk more about a “Missed abortion” on, why does the body not recognize it sooner and do you consider gestation age by how many weeks the embryo stopped developing or the gestation age that the actual miscarriage happened?

  • So I got the norplex three year birth control because my body really was thinking I was pregnant or is telling me I am running out off eggs so I was having symptoms of pregnancy. So I still want to try when my body turns back to normal. Can u talk about this because I am 44 yrs old

  • After 4 years of unexplained infertility, finally became pregnant, but unfortunately the pregnancy ended in a missed miscarriage. Six months later, the exact month the miscarried child would have been born, I fell pregnant with my rainbow baby. She is now 11 years old. 17 months after her birth, we decided to start trying for a second, as didnt want age gap to be too big and we might struggle again. To our shock, fell pregnant very first month. She is now 9. Tried for a third but unfortunately never happened. I have since been diagnosed with adenomyosis which affects fertility.

  • I had a missed miscarriage at 12 weeks due to an immature placenta (I was supposed to be 14 weeks when i found out) i was devastated �� still am I’m now pregnant again after 6 months I’m 5 weeks so really early

  • The thing with fertility happened to my aunt..
    She was IDK 5 or less weeks pregnant, when she announced to the family, but about a week or so after the doctor discovered that the fetus didn’t have a heartbeat. And now, about a month and a half later, she is pregnant with twins (although we believe she was on hormones, ‘cause two babies are not usual in both families)….
    So idk, I believe they maybe you are more fertile after a miscarriage

  • @MamaDoctorJones, is it possible for someone to obtain their own birth records? (If the mother of the seeker has died, the father is estranged, an no other family members are likely to have any information, but the child born wants to review the medical notes of their own birth, is that possible?) Information there could be helpful in making greater sense if some past medical issues and chronic conditions, now that medical science has progressed so much in forty years. Thank you!

  • I really appreciate the information you provide. I’m a guy who has only had three serious relationships in my 39 years with no interest in having a kid. As a straight guy, I have a probably unhealthy interest in the female systems because it’s always treated as so taboo. I appreciate you talking candidly about it like it should be talked about.

  • So I’ve just been through my 3rd miscarriage in the last 18 months. I really don’t know what’s wrong with me, I have three older children, aged 8, 7, and 3. My husband and I are giving up trying for number 4, our hearts are so broken and my doctor isn’t bothered about finding out what’s wrong with me because I’ve already had children.

  • Hi MDJ,
    I have two questions.
    1. On pinterest I saw a post talking about the husband stitch and I was wondering if it was a real thing and if it’s really just to make the vagina tighter or has a medical advantage. And if it is only practiced in America or other parts of the world as well? (more specifically Europe and the Netherlands)
    2. Is pcos a common thing for females? Maybe it’s just the people I see in my YouTube but it sounds like everyone on my feed has it. I can already say four names from the top of my head. But I was just wondering.

  • This is a to a great degree fragile subject. Women get into distress and anxiety after a setback. It is something you can’t control. It is such a magnificent shock. It is basic to manage it with the mind. We are in a tantamount circumstance so I concur you in this condition. I figure everyone should watch this video. An obligation of appreciation is altogether to share this catch!

  • I have boat loads of fibroids which caused my miscarriages. I was able to have 1 live child. He is almost 23 now, I am post menopausal now.

  • Do you think you could make on on still births? I lost my nephew this year to this at 39 weeks and there was no medical reason. Drs said it was SIDS in the womb. I think it would be so helpful!! Thank you!!

  • When I broke down after my doctor told me my baby didn’t have a heartbeat, the Dr. said to me “you already have a child at home, right?” The most painful and upsetting experience of my life and I was treated less than human by doctor and his nurse, who happened to be pregnant. I never went back and im pregnant now and have a wonderful doctor who cares about my well being.

  • Just wanted to say after 13 years of miscarriages with out the pregnancy developing past 7wks, I can say I’m 15 weeks pregnant with a very much loved and wanted rainbow baby �� just wanted to say never give up your rainbow is around the corner, it took a world pandemic for my rainbow to shine a light on my heart xxx love from the uk baby is due 23rd jan

  • This is indeed a useful video. Very well said and explained. A lot of women face these issues in their pregnancy life. Thank you for sharing this video. I’ll share it so that others may benefit from it. All your efforts will pay off. Thumbs up!

  • Hi, Hope you are doing well. This is really informative video. Thanks for sharing this info. Today many couples are suffering from the depression of infertility and miscarriages. Everyone wanna know how to tackle the situation. You are doing a great job. Keep sharing solutions with us. All my best wishes.

  • I started crying when she acknowledged very early miscarriages as being real. I was raped at 15, my period was two weeks late after, I almost overdosed on blood thinners and did some other not good things to try and cause a miscarriage after I knew. What I did worked, but I still greave what I lost because I wish so bad it could’ve been different. I was so young. I was drinking heavily all the time. I didn’t know what to do. But I’ve had so many people tell me it wasn’t real because it was so early. It didn’t matter. Nothing hurts more.

  • Hello Dr Jones! I follow you on yt and greatly appreciate your content! I recently loss a baby at 21 weeks due to incompetence cervix. I never even knew something like this existed. I understand it’s hard to diagnose IC until a loss. I was wondering if you have any videos about IC, and it’s possible treatments like TVC, TAC or TVCIC. I’ve been researching and Plan to communicate with Dr Haney, a specialist on TACs. But I wld also love to hear your insight.
    Ty for you time!

  • My great grandmother had 6 miscarriages then she successfully conceived my grandfather and 3 other children 1 girl and two boys what I wanted to say in this comment is no matter what there is hope never give up

  • I was right about 4wks along when I got a positive HPT with my second IVF baby. The same day I tested positive, I was in a pretty serious car accident and ended up having a miscarriage afterwards. A nurse told me that my bleeding would be just like my period…. and it was, except that I also lost a little tiny umbilical cord. So, thanks for saying that very early losses are still devastating because they really are. For me, it was devastating especially because I lost what I will always believe was a perfectly viable baby.

  • I’m currently experiencing the ” missed miscarriage” I went in for my 12 week scan to find the baby had stopped developing a week ago.. and passed.. even though I’d had no bleeding or pain.. I’m still waiting to miscarry my hospital has left me for a week was yesterday I found out… And I can’t understand why this would’ve been my 3rd baby/child.. and I can’t stop crying.. I feel numb.. ������

  • This is so nice to have a video on this subject, Its not talked about enough and its hidden in shame.. but its not your fault its just natures way of saying, “baby wasn’t growing right hun, let’s try again ok”
    Its ok to be angry and sad, thats how you let people know your not ok and like I said, thats ok ❤

    We are not alone xx

  • I had a blighted ovum, diagnosed at 9w, but I wish my doctor was more helpful as I had to do all the research myself to know I had a blighted ovum as they they didn’t really go over it at all. But I am grateful at how my doctor kept saying “this isn’t your fault, you didn’t do anything wrong”

  • Egg Whisperer Show you give most auspicious tips. But I want to tell you that when you faced MC no one will heal your wound. Like the pain you feel can’t be relived. Yeah, others may condole you. but believe me, all these things are just temporarily. No one remembers these tips at that time. But anyways this is a great effort. Keep it up.

  • I’ve had 3 miscarriages and Sierra’s questions are definitely the questions I have. And it was so wonderful and reassuring and lovely to hear them answered. I did cry a bit. I’m a little choked up right now lol but it’s fine. Thank you for this video. We will have our rainbow babies ❤����������

  • I miscarried back in 2012. I didnt have any pain, I only had bleeding. I also had to get a dnc. So my question is is that normal? I was 12 weeks.

  • The explanation I was told for increase fertility (increased success) was possibly due to an increase in progesterone levels from the miscarriage carrying over into the new pregnancy? So specifically for those with progesterone levels causing miscarriage. Is this accurate at all?

  • Hi. This is such a helpful video. I’m glad you guys shared this with us. A lot of women face this anxiety. They just can’t stop thinking about losing another baby too. Some stop TTC after a miscarriage. They say it would be too hard for them.

  • An extremely informative video. This is something that has been extremely tough for me to even talk about. Going through this anxiety has been the worst. It is so difficult not to think about the incident all over again and again. This video, however, did really help. Thank you so much for uploading and sharing your knowledge with the world. More videos like these should be uploaded. Good luck!

  • I know that you are probably not going to see this and that’s all right but if there’s some way that you do can you address this or help me understand I got told when I was younger I have something called a flip-flop chromosome I do not know the scientifical name of it but they told me that it would make it harder for me to conceive and to carry a full-term baby and that the chance of my child growing up with a birth defect or a learning disability is higher and that my chance of miscarriage is also higher I’m 19 now but I want kids not saying at this moment I am saying later on but I want to know what I am going into is this is something that I need to discuss about getting a surrogate or IVF I want a few answers cuz I haven’t found many I also got told that this is a genetic issue my mother also had it and she had two miscarriages before she had me please if there’s anyway you see this let me know thank you very much
