A miscarriage is also known as a spontaneous abortion. It is when a pregnancy spontaneously ends by the 20th week or it ends by itself. Most miscarriages occur when the unborn baby has irreversible problems and they are unavoidable. The best way to think about it is the birth is being aborted because of difficult survival challenges. It is estimated that the rate of miscarriages up to 33% of known pregnancies. The rest for miscarriages are higher in women older than 34, women with certain medical conditions or those with a history of more than two prior miscarriages.
