Why Pregnancy Loss Occurs

Potential causes of a pregnancy loss could be based on when in the pregnancy the loss occurred (trimester one, two or three).

It is important to know that in many cases healthcare providers are not able to identify with certainty a cause or diagnosis for a miscarriage, also in the majority of pregnancies that end in miscarriage it is not due to something the person who is pregnant did or did not do. So Never blame yourself either as this could lead to depression and cause a mental shift with your mind set and or your relationship with your spouse.

Pregnancy loss occurs over different stages, so here are two examples below


A ‘’chemical pregnancy” is an early miscarriage that occurs shortly after implantation. You may have a positive pregnancy test due to the hormones being present but the embryo dose not develop completely as it should which results in a miscarriage.


A viral, bacterial or fungal infection can cause inflammation of the placenta which could cause the amniotic sac to break early.

It is important to know that pregnancy loss doesn’t mean you will never be able to have children. Most people who experience a miscarriage will go on to give birth to a healthy baby.
