MISCARRIAGE AND RECURRENT MISCARRIAGE
This service is only being offered in the Northern Suburbs.
Experiencing a miscarriage is devastating! It affects 10-15% of couples who successfully conceived. Unfortunately, the risk of miscarriage increases from 10% in women aged 20 to 24 to over 70% in women 45 years and older, with the most significant increase after 35.
77% of couples with unexplained recurrent pregnancy loss will have a successful pregnancy in the future.
Fun fact: Fruit lowers a hormone called androstenedione which has been linked to higher rates of miscarriage.
Your Fertility trained Dietician will check that prolonged high doses of folic acid are not masking vitamin B12.
Higher doses of folic acid may be required for a short period in certain patients.
Iodine and niacin dietary adequacy will also be checked.
