According to estimates from the American College of Obstetricians and the Mayo Clinic, between 15 and 20 percent of known pregnancies end in miscarriage, yet a recent survey found that 55 percent of responders believe miscarriage is "uncommon." Another study showed that 40 percent of participants who had experienced pregnancy loss said they felt very alone in the aftermath.
