According to pregnancy charity Tommy’s, 1 in 4 UK women will miscarry – that’s a shocking 25%. Statistics are uncertain because information about women that miscarry is only kept if the woman is admitted to hospital as a result, nothing is recorded for those who visit their GP.

It is most common in the first trimester between 7-12 weeks, and reasons for it happening are often completely unexplained, although plenty of women go on to have healthy pregnancies thereafter.
