Baby planning: Previous miscarriage

Having a miscarriage can be a very traumatic experience. If your previous pregnancy ended in one, you may feel that you're not emotionally ready for your next baby for quite some time. All this is quite natural and you don't need to feel that you are thinking or feeling differently.

On the other hand, if you do feel up to it, the decision of planning another baby straightaway is yours and you don't have to wait for your next baby just because you had a miscarriage in the last one and everyone around you expects you to wait for a while.

Once you have your next period, you can start planning.However, sometimes the doctor may suggest that you wait for three normal menstrual cycles before trying again. Go with the doctor's advice and remember one thing : If you've had a miscarriage once, it does not mean that you will not have a successful pregnancy this time around.

You may have to wait, however, if you have a history of miscarriages.
