What happens in your body during a miscarriage? – Nassim Assefi and Emily M. Godfrey

From TED Ed.

Explore what happens in the body during miscarriage, and learn about three common treatment options for pregnancy loss.

Globally, around 23 million pregnancies end in miscarriage each year. Despite how common it is, miscarriage can still feel isolating, and for some, emotionally traumatizing. And myths about miscarriage add to the stigma, leading many to blame themselves for the loss. So what happens in the body during miscarriage? Nassim Assefi & Emily M. Godfrey take a closer look at pregnancy loss and treatment.

Lesson by Nassim Assefi and Emily M. Godfrey, directed by Lené van Heerden, We Are Batch TV.
