I'd like to begin by saying how sorry I am for the losses suffered by those on here. This seems like a very special place to come for support though, so I hope you can help. My friend has sadly suffered a miscarriage at 20 weeks. She is opting to go through expectant management rather than have any medical intervention. Has anyone on here experienced this in the second trimester? If so would you be willing to share you experience? My friend would like to know how long labour/birth is likely to take (she has had one vaginal live birth and two early miscarriages previously if that makes a difference). Also how long she should expect to still have her bump after the birth? Many thanks in advance for any help you are able to offer. I feel very useless and unable to answer her questions at the moment .
