Miscarriage Bible Verse—20+ Passages To Bring Comfort And Hope

Miscarriage Bible Verse

Miscarriage is one of the worst things any woman could ever go through. 

When a mother loses a child before she gets the chance to hold that baby or hear that baby cry, it is a devastation that no human deserves to feel.

The causes of miscarriage are not entirely known. Most of the time, it is due to some sort of genetic defect. 

Approximately ten to fifteen percent of pregnancies end in miscarriage. 

Regardless of why and how early the pregnancy was, it is still a terrible loss. 

Some women have miscarriages before any real pregnancy symptoms start to show, while others are well into the first or second trimester.

Offering comfort to a grieving friend or loved one can be challenging. However, you may very well find some assuring promises in the Bible. Sharing a miscarriage Bible verse to a parent who has lost a baby may provide some solace to a broken heart.
