Miscarriage is the most common type of pregnancy loss, that ends on its own, within the first 20 weeks of gestation. The medical terms used to identify this potential complication or loss gives most women an uncomfortable feeling.
The Right Recovery From a Devastating Miscarriage Can Be the Key to Your Future Success:
There are few more devastating events than the loss of a pregnancy at any stage.
You tried to get pregnant. You achieved your goal. And now you are dealing with the shattering experience of a miscarriage.
Emotional and Physical Challenges:
Besides the loss of your baby, you are also dealing with a huge drop in the hormones that supported your pregnancy. So it is physically and hormonally very challenging to keep a positive attitude. If you have experienced two or more successive miscarriages you may also have been told that you may be infertile. While miscarriage is not uncommon (occurring in up to 25% of recognized pregnancies),
►Less than 5% of women will experience two miscarriages in a row.
►Less than 1% three or more successive miscarriages.
The Reasons for Multiple Miscarriages:
The reasons for multiple miscarriages are not clear. It is important to have a qualified doctor check you physically. If there is an anatomical problem or a large fibroid, you may be able to have surgery and correct the problem. All the other reasons (immunological, genetic, hormonal) are not always agreed upon from doctor to doctor and the solutions are also controversial. If there is no medically diagnosed reason for the miscarriage, it seems as an energy issue. Your body does not have enough energy to hold the pregnancy.
Treating your body with the same gentle support you want to give your child may very well help your immune system to relax its hyperactive response. Soothing and quieting your body’s inflammatory response may increase your odds for a successful pregnancy.
Weak Digestion or a Lack of Warmth:
One of the most common reasons for losing an early pregnancy is inadequate progesterone production. This is the same factor that causes luteal phase defect. Progesterone is by its nature very warm and energetic. Low progesterone production is a clear indication that your body has inadequate energy. This may be directly related one of two (or both) specific patterns.
►Weak digestive function or
►A lack of internal warmth which could be from eating too many cold foods, or from a constitutional tendency to chill easily.
When digestive function improves and the exact right warming herbs and foods are introduced it will enhance your ability to carry your baby until your placenta takes over with its own progesterone production.
Too Little or Too Much:
It is common after a miscarriage for your FSH levels to rise. Your periods may stop. You may even get hot flashes, feel irritable and have a low libido.
For each woman the pattern is a little different. Instead of the most common patterns above you might need more blood* or have a need to clear the tendency to overheat in the upper body**
These are normally the patterns associated with miscarriage. Each is related to either
►Too little (feeling cold, low libido, hypo function of any kind) or
►Too much (hot flashes, irritability, mood swings) energy.
Neither of these are diseases. They are imbalances which can be rebalanced.
You Need Support:
Our consultant may have given you the support of progesterone suppositories. We also advise the use of one of Natural Essential Products formula to support your first trimester. This may also be an important time to engage an acupuncturist. Becoming pregnant again is a transition time, and how you make that transition may affect you holding a pregnancy to full term. This is a time to temporarily compromise the life you know in order to sustain the life you have worked so hard to attract.
