A natural miscarriage is recommended only if it is early enough that the risk of infection remains low. Moreover, a natural miscarriage can be a pretty painful experience. Yet, there are ways to manage the pain. Do it in a bathtub filled with warm water. It takes the edge away from the pain. Having someone there to massage your lower back during contractions can also help. My miscarriage took about three hours. After this the pain gradually subsided. I awoke the next day feeling peaceful, refreshed, and stronger than I had every felt before in my life about myself as a woman.
