My story

[p]As many of you will know, our path to becoming parents has been rocky. In 2020, we finally got to bring home a baby - our son, Edward. But before that we had four miscarriages – we still don’t know why. [/p][p]Before Edward was born, I’d run some races to raise money for charities doing important work in preventing miscarriage and also supporting people through it. I'm not quite back up to half-marathon speed yet, but I’m still aiming to clock up some more miles and (hopefully) more money. [/p][p]Around one in five pregnancies sadly end in miscarriage. It is incredibly common but that doesn’t make it any less devastating. One in 100 couples, like me and Dan, will experience recurrent miscarriage, which means three in a row or more. Some couples go through this upwards of ten times before they get their longed for baby. [/p][p]For most people who miscarry, there are almost no answers. No one can tell you why it has happened, or whether it will happen again (and again). [/p][p]For many people the best explanation for why they keep losing baby after baby is that it is just ‘bad luck’ or ‘one of those things’.[/p][p]It’s not good enough to assume nothing can be done. It may be common, but a miscarriage is not a cold to be shrugged off. [/p][p]We need answers and we need to talk about pregnancy loss more openly. We need proper support and advocacy for those affected - that's why any donations here will be split between several brilliant charities who do vital work in this arena: Tommy's, The Miscarriage Association, Petals (who provide counselling for those going through pregnancy loss), ARC antenatal (who support couples going through antenatal screening and termination for medical reasons) and the British Pregnancy Advisory Service.
