Recurrent Miscarriage

Recurrent miscarriage is defined as two or more consecutive pregnancy losses.

Miscarriages in the first trimester may be as high as 50% with many women not even realizing that they are pregnant before miscarrying. After having one miscarriage, most women go on to have a healthy pregnancy and even for women who have had six or more pregnancy losses, the overwhelming majority of them go on to have a baby. If you have had two miscarriages in a row, you should see a medical practitioner to check for underlying causes such as uterine shape problems, chromosomal abnormalities, and possible hormonal imbalances.

Women who have had recurrent miscarriages have higher than average odds of developing anxiety and depression.  Recent studies show that women who have regular supportive care during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy dramatically reduce the number of unexplained miscarriages.

A combination of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can help reduce the risk of miscarriage by:

  1. Increasing the blood flow to the ovaries to nourish the developing follicles and create better egg quality and embryos.

  2. Nourishing the developing fetus by improving the blood flow to the placenta and preventing uterine contractions.

  3. Regulating the body’s natural hormonal production, which in turn improves ovarian function, egg quality, and proper progesterone levels.

  4. Relaxing the body and reducing stress levels to prevent early uterine contractions.
