Physical Recovery After a Miscarriage Procedure

It's Good to be Prepared for How You May Be Feeling

Going through a miscarriage is very sad and can be quite traumatic. It really helps to be well informed about what happens during a miscarriage procedure and what kind of recovery after a miscarriage to expect.

Miscarriage is hugely emotional, please refer to my other pages on healing after miscarriage for emotional advice and support. It is so important to take the time to heal from your miscarriage properly.

How Long Does it Take to Recover After a Miscarriage Procedure

Physical recovery after a miscarriage can really vary, depending on the length of your pregnancy. As you can imagine, the further along you were, the more pregnancy hormones you would have in your body. Hormone levels need their time to return to pre-pregnancy levels. Be prepared to expect postpartum symptoms due to your hormone levels changing, especially hair loss.

Seek medical advice if at any point you develop a fever, experience chills, severe abdominal pain, severe headaches, continuous heavy bleeding or strongly smelling discharge.

Physical Recovery after a Natural Miscarriage

Physical recovery from a natural miscarriage that happened within the first trimester may take between one or two menstrual cycles. It really depends on how long your hormones take to stabilise again, which will mean the return to a normal menstrual cycle. Some women experience a delay to their next cycle, others may skip a cycle, whereas some women have a normal menstrual cycle.

You may experience some more intense cramping and heavier bleeding as you miscarry. Take some time to rest your body and take pain relief if you need it.

Always use sanitary pads and avoid using tampons for at least a month after you miscarry in order to prevent any possibilities of infection.

Physical Recovery after a Dilation & Evacuation Surgery

Physical recovery after a Dilation & Evacuation is similar to after a Dilation & Curettage. You may however experience more intense cramping as your uterus contracts backs to its original size.

Physical Recovery After a Stillbirth

Physical recovery after a stillbirth is the same as recovering from a normal birth. Following a stillbirth, a woman will experience postpartum bleeding for up to six weeks, after pains, her milk will come in, she will feel tired and may have problems with postpartum hemorrhoids. You may have needed stitches after giving birth and need to take good care of the healing process.

Be sure to rest and take time to heal physically.

I was feeling really nervous and unsure about enrolling for the Self-Study course. After watching some of the webinars in the Facebook group I decided I liked Vicki, she felt like the right kind of person who could help me. I did look a lot on the internet to see what kind of healing therapy was available and just felt that Vicki had a different approach and I could trust her better. The course really helped me with my emotions and the meditations are amazing. You can tell that Vicki has been through a lot of pain herself as she really understands how we feel and knows what to say. I learnt techniques that help me feel so much more confident about myself and I know my baby is now an angel. Thank you Vicki.

I had three miscarriages in total. It was devastating, I was so sad and depressed. I cried each time we got the happy news that our friends were pregnant and I was just not happy for them. It was just not fair. Each person I talked to wanted to help, but they only made it worse. They didn't know what I was going through. I liked the sound of Vicki, she had been through miscarriage herself and felt so much easier to talk to than anyone else I had tried. She really understood me and for the first time I tried deep healing. I experienced such profound shifts and was able to feel like my old self again. I got my confidence back and learnt some great techniques which still give me strength every day.

I met Vicki for two healing sessions and it was amazing. For a long time I have not been able to let my negative feelings go (I had 3 miscarriages in the last year). It was like a vicious circle. I encourage you to get in contact with Vicki. She can help you cope with those feelings that make your life so hard
