Simone has a long-standing professional interest in helping women who have suffered recurrent pregnancy loss. While most often, investigation leads to a finding of ‘unexplained’ pregnancy loss, occasionally it will reveal a treatable issue.
It is preferable to review couples early in the fertility process, in order to assess and reassure for a future pregnancy. Simone also organises early monitoring of any subsequent pregnancy through such tests as ultrasound and measuring levels of hormones associated with pregnancy to ensure a normally progressing pregnancy.
Investigations are done for possible causes of recurrent pregnancy loss,eg. Thyroid dysfunction, possible embryo implantation issues, anatomy (shape) of uterus, health of sperm, genetic factors, lifestyle factors etc. After thorough investigation, I will discuss the most appropriate management options for you and your partner.
