Evidence to Improve Care

Early Pregnancy Loss

Care in All Settings

A quality standard currently in development


This quality standard addresses care for people experiencing spontaneous pregnancy loss prior to
13 weeks' gestation. The scope of this standard applies to all care settings and includes diagnosis, management, and psychosocial aspects of care for early pregnancy loss. It does not address therapeutic abortion.

The Provincial Council for Maternal and Child Health, Pregnancy and Infant Loss Network, and Health Quality Ontario are collaborating on the development of this quality standard.


The work on this quality standard started in November 2017.
