Dr. Carrillo shares when it is safe to tell family and friends about a new pregnancy after a miscarriage.
One of the scariest parts of having another pregnancy after you had a miscarriage or any other type of pregnancy loss is not being sure if this pregnancy is going to be successful.
One of the most common questions in that circumstance is, when is it safe to tell my family and friends, and do I tell my co-workers?
My response to that is that only those people who know you well enough to act as your support system if you do experience another loss, should be told of the pregnancy in the first trimester.
Your mom, your sister, your friends, people that you are going to need to support you if you do have another loss should know when you get another positive pregnancy test.
As for our workers, as for our co-workers or as for our neighbors, maybe it’s better to not let them know right away.
