What is a miscarriage?
Miscarriage is when an embryo or fetus dies before the 20th week of pregnancy. Miscarriage usually happens early in your pregnancy — 8 out of 10 miscarriages happen in the first 3 months.
Lots of people experience this kind of pregnancy loss. In fact, 10-20% of pregnancies end in miscarriage. But even though miscarriage is common, it can be emotionally difficult. Feelings of grief and loss are normal after losing a pregnancy.
The medical term for miscarriage is “spontaneous abortion.”
What are the causes of miscarriage?
It can be difficult to know exactly why a miscarriage happened, but it’s almost never caused by something the pregnant person did. Normal activities like sex, exercise, working, and taking most medicines do NOT cause a miscarriage. Minor injuries, like falling, don’t generally cause a miscarriage either.
Some things that are known to cause miscarriages include:
When the fertilized egg has an abnormal number of chromosomes (genes). This happens at random, so you can’t prevent it or cause it to happen.
Certain illnesses, like severe diabetes, can increase your chances of having a miscarriage.
A very serious infection or a major injury may cause miscarriage.
Late miscarriages — after 3 months — may be caused by abnormalities in the uterus.
If you’ve had more than 2 miscarriages in a row, you’re more likely to have a miscarriage.
Good Morning, Beautiful People!!!
Hope all is well.
I wanted to share with you something most men will never worry about a day in their lives’; Miscarriage. I think this is something that needs to be reflected on a little longer, in a lot more depth.
Miscarriages are already something women take hard in the first place! I don’t understand how a man or a large group of men have the right to decide on the fate of a woman and her body! They have never had to go through one painful period, or the embarrassment of walking around not noticing you bled through because your pad shifted, or your flow was too heavy for your tampon or pad, or even the pain of loosing a child or bleeding so heavy til you literally see stars.
No, man knows anything about this. So, I’m not understand how in Georgia they’re saying miscarriage is consider second degree murder and women who experience miscarriages could be sentenced to 30yrs in prison! Doesn’t that sound crazy?!
First of all; How are you going to imprison a woman for something that is happening with her body?!
To be honest, I feel like we’re going back to the 1800’s, where men did whatever they wanted and women had to deal with it! How in the hell is it possible that we have, most likely more women than we do men and they still have say so over what a woman does with her body?!! I’m in no way saying I’m for abortion. I just think your body is your business, and no government, man or other entity should have the right to tell you what to do with it.
Think of it like this, if the Creator didn’t want you to have it, it wouldn’t be yours.
I would really love to see something be done about theses ridiculous laws concerning abortion. To be honest the only one that really concerns me is the one in Georgia. I feel like because of this new law, there are going to be plenty women afraid to go to the doctor, for the simple fact that it could land them in jail for 30yrs. Because of this, a lot of women won’t get the type of care they need for they’re babies, that are going to come in to the world.
Another thing that could be possible is; they’re coming up with these laws to slow down the population. Think about it; if you knew you couldn’t get an abortion or having a spontaneous miscarriage could land you in jail. Wouldn’t you do all you could not to get pregnant in the first place?

I would love to know your thoughts on these new laws concerning Abortions and Miscarriages.
Remember if you want something to be done, you can’t wait for someone else to do it for you. You have to start the change yourself.
