Couples who have suffered a miscarriage often have three questions: why did it happen? will it happen again?, and what can be done to prevent it happening in the future? Arri Coomarasamy, Professor of Gynaecology at the University of Birmingham and the Director of the Tommy’s National Centre for Miscarriage Research, addresses these questions. The answers are based on a series of 3 articles published in the Lancet. Professor Coomarasamy dispels the myth that a miscarriage is ‘one of those things’ about which nothing can be done. Treatment with the hormone progesterone, for example, can rescue many pregnancies in [...]
Couples who have suffered a miscarriage would want to know if a future miscarriage can be prevented. Arri Coomarasamy, Professor of Gynaecology at the University of Birmingham and the Director of the Tommy’s National Centre for Miscarriage Research, explains that there is a profound misconception out there that all miscarriages are “nature’s way of dealing with a pregnancy that is not normal”, and therefore nothing could be done to prevent them. This is incorrect. The various steps that can be taken to reduce the risk of miscarriage are shared in a series of 3 articles published in the Lancet [...]

Arri Coomarasamy, Professor of Gynaecology at the University of Birmingham and the Director of the Tommy’s National Centre for Miscarriage Research, argues this is simply wrong.
