Below are very vivid photographs (of miscarriages, not abortions), most taken from different mothers who’ve shared their birth experiences, so that you may be able to better identify what your baby may look like.
Because of their unique nature, photos of a molar pregnancy and a blighted ovum are held within the sections specific to these losses. If you have experienced a miscarriage and are not sure if you’ve been able to identify the physical form of the baby, our blighted ovum section has a helpful photo of a sac where the baby cannot be identified (this doesn’t necessarily mean you have had a blighted ovum. Our vanishing twin section has a paragraph that discusses what may happen with early losses.
Just click the link to the left of the picture, and you will be taken to an informational page that will give you descriptions of the general size and development of your baby, links to the kind of miscarriage you may be having, and the birth methods that may be options for you.
If you do not want to see all of these photos together, but only want to see the photo from the specific week that your baby lived to, please click the week here:
If you click on a photo, you will be directed to the outside web source that has that baby’s story.
