Studies Suggest 15% Of All Pregnancies End In Miscarriage, Warn Support Networks Are “Inconsistent”

CNN (4/26, Hunt) reports three new studies published in The Lancet on Monday found 15% of all pregnancies, 23 million total, “end in miscarriage every year,” but warn that “existing care and support for women and couples is ‘inconsistent and poorly organized.’” Researchers also suggested the “actual number of cases is likely ‘considerably higher,’ as many miscarriages are managed at home and go unreported or they are undetected.” Siobhan Quenby, one of 31 experts that contributed to the studies, said in a statement that “this is not good enough, and we must ensure women are properly supported.”
