"My life is deprived of peace, I have forgotten what happiness is; My enduring hope, I said, has perished before the LORD."
- Lamentations 3:17-18
"The LORD's acts of mercy are not exhausted, his compassion is not spent; They are renewed each morning- great is your
faithfulness! The LORD is my portion, I tell myself, therefore I will hope in him."- Lamentations 3:22-24
Recurrent Miscarriage is typically defined as having 2 or more consecutive miscarriages.
Most healthcare providers will not test for health/biological issues with the mother until this takes place. (There are exceptions! You must seek out exceptions if you want possible answers after one loss.)
The risk of miscarriage increases in relation to the number of spontaneous miscarriages a woman has experienced.
While in the past miscarriage has always been considered "normal", modern medicine (though sometimes considered controversial on this topic) is slowly recognizing no miscarriage is "normal".
Many different factors potentially play a role. Some of these may include endrometriosis (undiagnosed), hormonal issues (such as low progesterone), "limited muscus phase"or ovulation defects, blood clotting irregularities, structural abnormalities of the uterus, autoimmune disorders, and the unfortunate and untreatable genetic abnormalities.
NaPro doctors can potentially assist you in charting your cycles and potentially identifying underlying causes.

(Please note a miscarriage is known as a "spontaneous abortion" in medical terminology and bears no reference to fault or intentions in regards to losing the child.)
