What an overwhelming devastation to wrap our heads around let alone to have to endure. Statistically speaking, 1 in 4 pregnancies will end in a miscarriage. Therefore, any woman who sees the positive sign on their pregnancy test? Naturally, they may have a fear they will miscarry. A miscarriage tends to occur within the first 23 weeks of pregnancy, but no matter the time frame, it is an occurrence with extreme impact and one to proceed about with tender compassion.
