Most Americans Believe Miscarriage MythsMiscarriages are common, but the majority of Americans still think they occur rarely, a new survey finds.
The nationwide online survey found that 55 percent of people in the United States believe that miscarriage happens in 5 percent or less of all pregnancies. But in reality, miscarriages end 15 to 20 percent of reported pregnancies, according to the researchers.
Miscarriage myths affect more than just people in the United States; they are a universal problem, said the study's senior author, Dr. Zev Williams, the director of the Program for Early and Recurrent Pregnancy Loss at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Montefiore Health System in New York City.

I find it odd that most Americans think that it happens in 5 % of pregnancies, or less. Who did they ask? Still, 15-20 percent isn't as bad as the rate of miscarriage for women over 40...it can get as high as 60%.

I had 3 miscarriages in my early 30's. It is very tough. When I did finally become a MOTHER I appreciated my babies so very much though.“Every day that they don’t find something is good for me.“ Billie Dunn
