In brief: Miscarriages

Most miscarriages happen because the embryo simply fails to successfully develop through all of the important early steps in the reproductive process.
Sometimes there are nutritional or hormone deficiencies and sometimes a genetic or chromosome problem. Almost never is there a cause related to something the mother had any control over.

A miscarriage is a pregnancy that ends before the baby is viable.
There are a number of causes and presentations. Common names such as complete, incomplete, or missed are used to refer to different situations and how the patient presents to her physician. There is also early and late depending on how far developed the baby is.
