We are here for you.

You have gone from feeling on top of this world to experiencing extreme sadness, despair and confusion and on top of it you have physical symptoms that remind you you’re no longer carrying the baby that you once were.  We are committed to being a support for you during this time and helping you (when you’re ready) to prepare your body so you can try to conceive again and carry a baby to full term. 

There are many possible causes of miscarriage, the most common of them are genetic problems with the developing fetus, and there is nothing that can be done for this type of miscarriage. It’s nature’s way of creating healthy human beings. Many women experience this type of miscarriage and go on to have a healthy, uneventful pregnancy. Chinese Medicine does an amazing job at preparing your body for making and carrying a baby. We know miscarriages are really hard and we’re here to support you with the tools Chinese medicine provides to help you through this time.

Bleeding

Bleeding is typically the first sign of a miscarriage, but it may be misleading. About 30 percent of women will have bleeding during their pregnancies and they go on to have a healthy baby. However, contact your doctor at the first sign of bleeding so he/she can check your health and your baby’s.

Pain

Pain, especially associated with other symptoms like bleeding, is the other leading symptom of a miscarriage. The pain may be located in the abdomen, pelvic area, or lower back, and can range from dull and aching to period-like cramping. It may be difficult to determine if the pain is normal, since round ligament pain and even cramps can be common during early pregnancy as your body expands for the growing uterus.

Decreased Activity

The majority of miscarriages occur during the first trimester, but signs of a loss later on in the pregnancy may be different. One of the primary ways to determine your baby’s health is staying attentive to his/her activity. If you notice a sudden or drastic decrease in activity, drink a little orange juice or have a piece of fruit and lay down for 10 minutes. Be sure to also let your doctor know so he can determine if further testing is necessary.

If you are noticing any miscarriage signs call your health care provider immediately, and take care to avoid any strenuous activity or activities that involve vaginal penetration, as those activities could make your symptoms worse.
