The Miscarriage Association of Ireland

The Miscarriage Association of Ireland is a charitable and completely voluntary body set up with the support of women and men who themselves have been through miscarriages.

We strive to achieve our goals and aim to ...

  • Increase awareness to the general public that all pregnancy loss is a bereavement and that the length of the pregnancy is not related to the depth of grief and sense of loss experienced.
  • Provide support, help and information for women, couples and their families who have had, or are having a miscarriage and feel the need for help.
  • Make available such information about miscarriage, its effects and other allied information that is not already or easily available.
  • Provide a National Information Centre on all aspects of miscarriage. This includes the time afterwards when support and information are essential and very much needed.
  • Dispel the myths about miscarriage, and to open the whole area. Ignorance is not bliss when it causes fear and anxiety to the person(s) involved.
  • Seek to effect change, with the support of the medical professions, where such changes have rendered themselves not only essential, but vital. Whilst we are only too aware of how over-worked doctors and other medical staff are, we nonetheless seek their individual support, help and advice.
  • Try to fill the many gaps that lie within the present system that deals with the woman who has miscarried.
  • Set up local groups throughout the country in order to bring about contact between those women and men who might otherwise suffer needlessly, and perhaps worsening any possible long term effects.
  • Encourage those effected by miscarriage to openly and freely express their feelings, to allow themselves to cry and to grieve without fear of being told they are being selfish, or to 'shake themselves out of it'.
  • Give others the benefit of our own experiences and knowledge, and to be to other women and men what we ourselves would have wanted had such a service been available at the time.
  • Learn more so that others may suffer less.
  • Compile, print and distribute leaflets, posters and pamphlets that could be left in clinics, waiting room, ward-rooms, perhaps even handed to a patient by a medical practitioner: This way the couple are aware that help, support and information is available, if or when they need it.
  • Become affiliated to as many relevant groups and associations in order that we may work together to provide an efficient a service as possible and to combine information.
