Miscarriage

Miscarriage involves the fetus losing viability for life before 20 weeks of gestation. Symptoms of miscarriage may include bright red or heavy bleeding and sharp, stabbing pain. If you think that you may be having a miscarriage, please go to the emergency room immediately.

Having a miscarriage can create a great void and feelings of hurt or depression. Please do not try to deal with these feelings on your own! God loves you, and He is the source of healing in our lives. Psalm 147:3 says, “He heals the brokenhearted and bandages their wounds,” and Psalm 56:8 says, “You [God] keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in Your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book” (NLT). God sees and cares for you during these difficult times. Seek out help to find healing in Christ.
