Abstract [en]

Purpose: To describe women’s experiences of early pregnancy after their experience of earlier miscarriage(s).

Method: This study used a qualitative method with a phenomenological perspective. Midwives working in Maternity Healthcare Center were intermediaries in the data collection. The analysis material consisted of six open interviews with women in early stages of pregnancy that have experienced miscarriage in the past. The data analysis created an essence of the women´s experiences.

Results: All of the interviewees are happy to be pregnant. For some of the women the happiness is mixed with worry about experiencing another miscarriage. They are reluctant to experience the grief and loss that had accompanied their previous miscarriages. Those women are able to explain their misgivings to friends and family experience less worry and reluctance. A positive outlook for their pregnancy and to see miscarriage as something natural makes it easier to live with the outcomes.

Conclusion: Women who have had a previous experience of miscarriage have mixed feelings of happiness and worry in early stages of pregnancy. Those women that choose to think positively accept miscarriage as part of nature’s way and feel an inner peace. All of the women realize the importance of finding peace in their pregnancy.
