Brand-new research in The Lancet debunks the myth that miscarriage is ‘just one of those things’. The report has also uncovered shocking truths:
Black women have 40% increased risk of miscarriage.
Miscarriage doubles risk of depression and quadruples risk of suicide.
Women over 40 years old are 37% more likely to have a miscarriage.
After 3 miscarriages, women are more likely to suffer from blood clots and heart disease.
Yet even those at higher risk of miscarriage still don’t get specialist care until they’ve lost 3 babies. – Source; Tommy’s Charity Tommy’s
