Through the Heart is a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that embraces all types of pregnancy loss, including miscarriage, stillbirth, ectopic pregnancy, blighted ovum, chemical pregnancy and pregnancies terminated for medical reasons. No matter the situation or length of gestation, a loss can be difficult to recover from physically, emotionally and mentally.
Because it is a sensitive topic not often discussed, many people do not know how to provide support for family, friends, and others in their lives who are experiencing a loss. Sometimes it is easiest to ignore the situation, act like it didn't happen, or offer a cliche statement, but that can be more hurt than help.
Almost everyone knows someone who has experienced a pregnancy loss, whether it be a family member, friend, co-worker, or neighbor. Therefore, pregnancy loss is a subject that needs more attention so we can all better understand the grieving and recovery process either directly or indirectly.

Approximately 15-20% of known pregnancies end in miscarriage. Many more are naturally aborted before the woman even knows she's pregnant.
