1 in 4 women will experience a miscarriage. Miscarriage is defined as pregnancy loss prior to 20 weeks gestation. The Miscarriage App is a mobile application which addresses all aspects of miscarriage.
Many women aren't offered, or fully aware of, the wide range of options available to them during their miscarriage.
