Abstract

For most women, pregnancy is a significant life event and the prospect of losing a baby causes anxiety, stress and grief. Modern treatment of miscarriage should provide rapid sympathetic diagnosis and adequate counselling. Early pregnancy assessment units benefit patients, staff and the NHS. Many clinicians use medical treatment or expectant management, rather than standard surgical evacuation of the uterus.
