Pregnancy Complications

Why my miscarriages were more painful than your labor.

Pain of loss

This year has been tough on my husband and I. We have lost two pregnancies. The first loss was at 5 weeks 6 days and the second loss was at 7 weeks 2 days.  We have been planning to have kids for quite a few years now. We both waited for the right time, the right jobs, medical, marriage, etc.  It was the perfect plan to build a family… or so we thought.

U.S. preterm births hit new low - still work to do!

The March of Dimes just released the 2012 Premature Birth Report Card. The U.S. has hit a new 10 year low for preterm births -- a significant improvement now registering at 11.7%! Still, overall, the U.S. scores a "C" as we continue to have a high rate of preterm births comparatively. This is a clear indication of work to be done!
