This fact sheet has the #withconsumers tick from the Consumers Health Forum of Australia

A miscarriage is the loss of a pregnancy before the unborn baby (fetus) can survive outside the uterus (womb).

About one in four pregnancies ends in miscarriage and the rate increases with a woman’s age.

Most miscarriages (75–80 out of every 100) happen in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy.
