Grand River Hospital is committed to connecting you with the right supports, to ensure you receive the right care at the right time. Some pregnancies end in loss and it is important for women who have experienced a miscarriage or stillbirth to have access to the care they need.

What is a Miscarriage?

Miscarriage is the unplanned ending of a pregnancy before 20 weeks gestation. Often the exact cause of a miscarriage cannot be determined and can be a great source of stress and anxiety.
