Il n’y a pas de « bonne » façon de se sentir après une fausse couche. Certaines femmes s’en remettent rapidement, tandis que d’autres prennent du temps à récupérer. Certaines réagissent bien sur le coup, mais ont de la peine plus tard. Vous n’êtes pas la seule à vivre cette terrible expérience. Environ une grossesse sur quatre se termine en fausse couche, et nous ne savons pas toujours pourquoi. Ce n’est pas ce que vous avez fait ou n’avez pas fait qui a causé votre fausse couche. Ce dépliant répond à quelques questions courantes et explique ce à quoi on peut s’attendre lorsqu’on fait une fausse couche. Il indique les symptômes qui nécessitent un suivi à l’urgence et donne de l’information sur les ressources qui sont disponibles dans la collectivité.
This pamphlet is a French translation of "Miscarriage: Yarmouth Regional Hospital" pamphlet 2009. There is no “right” way to feel after a miscarriage. Some women may recover quickly, while others take a long time. Some may cope well at the time, but find the pain of their loss hits them later. You are not alone in this terrible experience. About 1 in 4 pregnancies ends in miscarriage, and we don’t always know why. Nothing you did or didn’t do is likely to have caused the miscarriage. This pamphlet answers some common questions you may have and describes what to expect if you experience pregnancy loss. A list of symptoms that need followup at the nearest Emergency Department is listed. A list of local resources are provided if you wish to seek extra support in your community.

This is a French translation of the English pamphlet 1600, “Possible Ectopic (Tubal) Pregnancy: Nova Scotia Women’s Choice Clinic (NSWCC)”. An ectopic pregnancy is when a fertilized egg implants outside the uterus, most often in the fallopian tube. As the fertilized egg grows, it stretches the fallopian tube until it could eventually rupture (break open). This pamphlet explains the frequency of ectopic pregnancies, the reasons for testing for an ectopic pregnancy, symptoms to watch for when waiting for blood test results, and how your test results will be delivered. A contact number is provided if you have any questions.
