A young partner can offset some of your personal age-based miscarriage risk, especially if you are a man.
Men whose partners are young, under 30, have relatively low chances of miscarriage regardless of their own age, according to Risk of Miscarriage After Confirmation of a Fetal Heartbeat On a more positive note, women in their late 30s and early 40s have a good chance of an ongoing pregnancy after confirmation of fetal heartbeat.
Whilst as many as 1 in 4 women experience a miscarriage in their lifetime, don’t forget that only 1 in 100 have multiple miscarriages and the vast majority of women go on to have healthy babies.
All of the clinics will accept patients who have had 3 miscarriages and an appropriate General Practitioner (GP) referral from anywhere within the UK (there is more specific information on criteria for each clinic below).
Problem 2: These sites do not breakdown miscarriage risk by other known risk factors, like the mother’s age.
Problem 3: Nearly all these sites derive their statistics from just two small studies, one which The lack of good information frustrated me when I was pregnant, and I bet it frustrates you too.Your referral can be made on the basis that the Tommy’s centre offers tests and treatments not offered by your local hospital.This can be the reason for your request for out-of-area referral. There is not a specific referral form that needs to be used; your GP can use their own.Currently only the clinic in Coventry has an arrangement that allows women with 2 miscarriages to be referred and then only from the local area (see more below).If you have had 3 miscarriages and wish to be referred to a Tommy’s clinic, you do not have to live within the area of any of the clinics; a GP referral can be made to whichever centre is convenient to you.As a result, many early losses happen to mothers who simply assume the bleeding is a normal period. Many miscarriages are unreported and some go unnoticed as it happens so soon.
