Missed miscarriage

A missed miscarriage is a pregnancy where the embryo or foetus has died but has not been physically passed. The foetus may have failed to develop in the uterus, while the placenta keeps the pregnancy going. 

Undergoing a missed miscarriage may be experienced in many different ways. The same applies to the time afterwards. Processing your emotions will take time, regardless of whether or not the pregnancy was planned or unplanned, wanted or unwanted.

Some may react with grief and loss after a missed miscarriage. Others may feel a sense of hopelessness, relief, anger or despair. These emotional reactions may arise immediately or much later. There is no right or wrong way to react. Only you know how you feel.

Most people benefit from talking with someone close to them, such as a partner, friends or family members. Others find it more helpful to speak with a professional.

Our focus, in our sessions, is on giving you the time and opportunity to talk about whatever you feel is important to you. This is meant to be a safe place, where you can speak openly without worries of what might be right or wrong.

  • Your situation at the moment
  • Uncertainty
  • Relationship with a partner/the co-parent
  • Relationship with your family
  • Your physical and mental health
  • Feelings of guilt and shame
  • Social or cultural pressure
  • Thoughts about the future

Do you need someone to talk to? 
At Amathea, you will meet healthcare professionals with extensive experience in helping people who are considering an abortion. We are a neutral healthcare service, have a duty of confidentiality, and can help you in your situation and in making your decision. You may come alone or together with your partner or co-parent.

All of our services are free of charge. We offer sessions in Norwegian and English. We can also book interpreters for other languages. A session here lasts about an hour, and you can talk with us on video, by phone, or at one of our offices. You decide how many sessions you need, and we will schedule these together.
