Miscarriage is heartbreaking. To help you grow a healthy baby and avoid the loss of a pregnancy — even if you’ve experienced recurring miscarriages — Sharon Moayeri, MD, and Nidhee Sachdev, MD, offer dedicated miscarriage care at their office in Newport Beach, California. If you’re at risk for miscarriage or you need extra support to avoid miscarriage, call OC Fertility®, or schedule your appointment online today.
Miscarriages are common — between 10-20% of pregnancies end in miscarriage — and aren’t an indication that you did anything wrong in carrying your baby. Working, exercise and sexual intercourse won’t harm your baby.
Instead, miscarriages most often happen because the fetus wasn’t developing normally, usually because a chromosome was missing or an extra chromosome was present.
Other common causes of miscarriage include:
As you age, your risk for miscarriage increases. It also increases if you experience two or more consecutive miscarriages.
If you have a high risk for miscarriage or have experienced recurrent miscarriages, the experts at OC Fertility® work alongside you to help you protect your baby.
If you are concerned about your risk of miscarriage, talk to the team at OC Fertility® before you get pregnant again. With their pre-pregnancy planning, they can answer any questions you have and set you up for the greatest chance of a successful pregnancy.
If you have a personal or family history of recurrent miscarriage, are over the age of 35, or have a pre-existing health condition, consider pre-pregnancy planning at OC Fertility®. With this care, your OC Fertility® doctor works with you to protect your and your baby’s health.
The OC Fertility® team also offers in vitro fertilization (IVF) at their lab. With this option, they can perform preimplantation genetic testing on your embryo before transferring it to your uterus, ensuring it’s healthy and helping you avoid miscarriage.
Most miscarriages occur before 12 weeks. That’s why OC Fertility® offers first-trimester pregnancy monitoring to support you in the early weeks of your pregnancy.
You visit the office every one to two weeks during your first trimester. At each appointment, your doctor performs the relevant testing — like blood tests and ultrasound — to ensure your pregnancy progresses normally.
At the end of the 12th week, they connect you with the right doctor to walk with you through the rest of your pregnancy, whether that’s an obstetrician or a perinatologist.
Perinatologists specialize in high-risk pregnancies and can help you if any concerns come to light during your first-trimester pregnancy monitoring at OC Fertility®.
