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.
