Recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL) is defined as having two or more miscarriages. This affects about 1% of women and can be physically and emotionally difficult. Women who have had three or more first trimester losses, two or more second trimester losses, or at least one intra-uterine fetal death after 24 weeks are candidates for further evaluation to investigate the cause of recurrent miscarriage.
Even if no cause is found, most women with recurrent pregnancy loss will have a successful pregnancy with appropriate treatment. In the case of recurrent miscarriage, we work closely with the Maternal-Fetal Medicine Specialists at the Perinatal Assessment Center at Waukesha Memorial Hospital to provide you with the most comprehensive care.
As a team, we will work collaboratively to help you determine the risks, benefits, emotions, and cost of these evaluations.
