Miscarriage Counselling

It's only after you've suffered the enormous stress of a miscarriage that it becomes apparent just how common miscarriage is – it appears to be one of those great secrets – a fact of life mostly kept hidden. The statistics are that approximately up to one in four of all pregnancies will end in miscarriage.

The emotional impact of a miscarriage

Women can experience a wide range of emotions following a miscarriage including: sadness, guilt, anger, disbelief and depression. There is also fear that it will affect the chances of pregnancy in the future.

Miscarriage can also have a huge emotional impact on the whole family. It's easy to forget that miscarriage can be traumatic for the man in the relationship as well. Also the ripple effects can spread outwards as regards other family members and even grandparents and parents-in-law.

Miscarriage can also affect a couple's relationship in various ways which, in turn, has knock on consequences as regards the woman's longer term mood. The evidence is that miscarriage also dramatically alters attitudes to getting pregnant again, and even if a woman becomes successfully pregnant, the pregnancy is likely to be very stressful as a result of fears of another miscarriage.

Depression After Miscarriage

Sadly, 50% of women who miscarry will, at four weeks after the tragic event, be suffering such acute symptoms of emotional stress that they will warrant a diagnosis of clinical depression.

Even up to two years afterwards two thirds of women say they are troubled by disturbing and upsetting thoughts about the miscarriage – indicating the dramatic, and yet secret, longer term impact.

For this reason it is important to seek professional support.

Counselling and support following Miscarriage

The psychological care of those who have suffered great emotional distress as a result of a miscarriage involves skilled intervention because, for example, there is much complex stress around the search for causes. Often it remains uncertain what the precise cause was and this complicates recovery from the upset of miscarriage.

  • Many thanks for this and all your work in helping us get here far more swiftly than we have managed with the NHS. It is much appreciated, and you and Dr Chowdhury have helped greatly in relieving the stress we have been feeling by getting us to a place where we know what is going on, and what we need to do for our son.
