If you’ve recently lost a baby, it can be a bittersweet experience to do all those things you thought you wouldn’t do for another year or more.
Although nothing can help you heal except getting through one day at a time, sometimes the chance to have a drink can help aid relaxation and give you a mental break from the overwhelming emotions you’ve been experiencing.
Can you drink after a miscarriage?
Drinking alcohol is a personal choice but if you do choose to drink, make sure that you do so in moderation.
Alcohol is a blood thinner, which means it can increase your bleeding. Although for most women this won’t cause an issue, it can cause problems if you’re anemic or are taking medications which could cause adverse reactions.
If you do choose to drink, keep in mind that alcohol may slightly increase your flow and in some cases increase your cramps. It can also dehydrate you and make you feel dizzy.
In most cases, a woman can drink in moderation after a miscarriage. However it’s always best to check with a medical care provider who knows your medical history.
