In its report the health watchdog NICE recommends the following changes, adding that some are "not exactly rocket science".
- More weekend and out-of-hours services for women at risk
- Separate those who are having a baby from those who are losing a baby
- Help women who do not access medical help readily, such as recent migrants, refugees and asylum seekers
Julie Orford, who has had two miscarriages, described the treatment she received on the NHS:
Women at risk of miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy should be given more support and information, according to the health watchdog. A report by NICE says medical staff should be given specific training to deal sensitively with women at risk of losing their babies.
NICE says one in five pregnancies results in miscarriage and 11 out of 1,000 are ectopic. That means there are more than 50,000 early pregnancy losses in the UK every year.
