Miscarriages

Up to 20% of pregnancies in the U.S. end in miscarriage

Clinical depression after a miscarriage is fairly common 1 of every 10 women who have a miscarriage, 1 of every 6 women who are childless and 1 of every 2 women who have a medical history of depression

Within approx. two weeks after the miscarriage:

  • See your doctor
  • Have your doctor evaluate you for signs of clinical depression

If you or your doctor suspects you might be suffering from clinical depression:

  • Get a referral to a mental health specialist

If you know someone who has suffered a miscarriage:

  • Be sympathetic and understanding
