Can I bring my boyfriend or friend with me?

What about miscarriage?
According to a medical researchers recordings… approximately 30% of pregnancies end in miscarriage. A miscarriage happens when a woman’s body cannot sustain a pregnancy. In a miscarriage, a woman may have cramping and bleeding. Eventually her body will expel the fetus. Occasionally surgery is important to know before you go through a surgical procedure like abortion.
