Woman Participating in International Miscarriage Trial Celebrates Birth of Baby
After three traumatic miscarriages in a row, a British woman, Angela Mummery, had practically given up hope of having another child. But then she heard about a pioneering international trial being carried out on her doorstep in Birmingham, and Angela’s despair was transformed into the joy of her baby dreams coming true. The trial involves giving pregnant women with a history of miscarriage the drug Progesterone twice a day, to see if it can help them remain pregnant for nine months. Progesterone is a steroid hormone produced during pregnancy and given to women having IVF treatment.
