Miscarriages are common; about 1/6 of pregnancies stop growing and miscarry. Usually it does not mean there is anything wrong with the patient, nor will it mean an increase to the risk of a second miscarriage.
At Willow Clinic we offer medical treatment of miscarriages. Most miscarriages can happen naturally without any treatment but sometimes it can take a long time.
On your first visit, you will have an examination and ultrasound by a doctor and a counselor will explain the procedure and medications used. You will have a blood test for hemoglobin and Rh. This visit may take up to 3 hours. You will take the medications at home and expect bleeding and cramping. We will then book you another appointment to come back in one week to make sure everything is complete.
If you have a BC Care Card, all of your visits and lab test costs will be covered.
If you do not have a BC Care Card the charge for these appointments will be $400.00 total. There may be additional charges at the lab.
