Loss

Sadly, not all pregnancies progress to term and can be lost through miscarriage.

At Logan Wellbeing Medical we understand the pain of pregnancy loss, so we offer a sensitive support program for both men and women going through such a difficult time.

Here are explanations of some conditions that can lead to pregnancy loss.

Chemical Pregnancy:

Not a false pregnancy or a false positive on a pregnancy test, but a very early miscarriage. Doctors believe chromosomal abnormalities usually cause chemical pregnancies.

Ectopic pregnancy:

When a fertilised egg implants itself outside of the womb, usually in one of the fallopian tubes. If an egg gets stuck, it won't develop into a baby and your health may be at risk if the pregnancy continues. Unfortunately, it's not possible to save the pregnancy, and it is usually resolved using medicine or an operation.

First-Trimester Miscarriage:

Sometimes called spontaneous abortion, is very common but also heart-breaking for most parents. A variety of different conditions can cause it and you should talk to your GP to investigate why. 

Second-Trimester Miscarriage:

Late miscarriages, such as those in the second trimester, can happen for many reasons. Some of these causes might be chromosomal abnormalities, cervical insufficiency, congenital birth defects, placental problems, or other factors.

Stillbirth:

The death of a baby in the womb before birth. Potential causes and contributing factors to stillbirth include infection, placenta problems, birth defects, pregnancy complications, high blood pressure in the mother, umbilical cord issues, and maternal medical complications.
