Natural Miscarriage FAQ

1. What is Natural Miscarriage?

Naturally induced miscarriage is the act of using a combination of herbs, vitamins, massage, visualization, and prayer to cause the body to miscarry or abort a fetus without mechanical or surgical intervention. The body itself is induced to expel the fetus.

It is safe and natural with minimal side effects. It is very inexpensive. It can be done in the privacy of the home. The methods we provide are ones that a woman can use by herself, without the involvement of anyone else.

Natural abortion has a long history. The Greeks and the Romans had many herbal potions that they used for abortion. Many traditional cultures that still survive today have used natural abortion for centuries.

2. Are these methods legal?

The information offered on the Natural Miscarriage website is protected under the 1st Amendment of the US Constitution which guarantees Freedom of Speech. Many countries have laws protecting freedom of speech.

Our effort is to provide information under our right to free speech to allow any woman from any country the right to choose whether she wants to have her baby or not. We believe that it is immoral and wrong for any society or religion to force a woman in early-term pregnancy to give birth to a child she does not want.

3. Are these methods safe?

Women die all over the world because they have no choice. Many women tell us of the horrible unsafe methods they were using before visiting our site. We offer some choices to women who have very little or no choice.

Most of the natural abortion methods are safe and without any serious side effects. Volunteers and the women who access this site are continually making it safer and better.

We have a Health Follow-Up Questionnaire of user responses that allows us to continually improve the directions, side effects, and effectiveness of each method.

Our ongoing research, feedback from health experts, women's organizations, and even "Pro-life" individuals allow us to be a central resource of information and support for women with an unplanned pregnancy.

Millions of women in the world who visit our site have no choice at all. A Muslim woman facing death in Saudi Arabia for being pregnant out of wedlock tends not to be as worried about potential side effects as a European woman who also has more choice.
We have carefully researched and gathered data so women have choices that are healthier than 'throwing myself down the stairs' or 'having my boyfriend punch me in the stomach' as a 'method' to miscarry. In the absence of choice, women (and men) will sometimes try extreme methods to terminate a pregnancy.

4) Are these methods effective?

Many of the methods of inducing abortion are simple and can be used immediately. We recommend doing some of the exercises and diet changes right away if you suspect you have an unwanted pregnancy.

The methods are most effective the sooner they are used. So you don't have to wait for another missed period. You can start right away.

Please see our Female Testimonials page from women around the world who have used these methods.

5. How long after conception can I use the methods?

We don't recommend using the natural miscarriage methods for pregnancies of over 2 months. They are most effective as soon as you confirm you have an unwanted pregnancy after the first missed period.

6. What if the methods don't work?

The methods of natural miscarriage are meant to work within about 20 days. If a woman is pregnant and the methods don't work she will know after 20 days.

This allows time to prepare a backup plan should the methods not be successful. As long as you do not use the Last Resort Methods you should have minimal side effects. You can still elect to have a medical abortion.

We have not heard of any reported side effects of any woman who decided to bring a baby to term after using the methods of Natural Abortion.

However, as we continually state, this site depends on the feedback of all woman who uses this information. All feedback whether positive or negative is used to ensure further effectiveness and safety for women in the future who use it.

Our mission is to continually improve the reliability and safety of the information that we offer.

7. Can I do this at home?

This site gives information to women who want to know about inducing a miscarriage at home safely and effectively. For many women in America where abortion is supposedly "legal," the shame and trauma of going through an anti-abortion picket line to get into the clinic is simply too much.

Women in Muslim or Catholic countries do not even have a clinic to go to. Many women cannot tell their family or friends because they would face severe penalties.

However, this information is not meant to eliminate your health care provider who should optimally be your ally in this process and support you through it. If that is not possible, then you can technically use these methods alone though we would recommend you tell someone you trust so you have a personal backup.

8. Can I use these methods for birth control?

We do not recommend it. Natural does not remove your responsibility in preventing pregnancy. Birth control is very important since not getting pregnant is the best way to avoid abortion.

We have created a sister website on sex-positive contraception: Ecosensual Natural Birth Control.

9. I have a  question about my situation. Can I contact you directly for abortion advice?

Unfortunately, because of the nature of the information we provide, we cannot give any personal advice or perform any service that could help someone induce a miscarriage.

We provide information that is protected under freedom of speech laws but we cannot directly advise a woman on her personal situation because that would open us up to the accusation of assisting a female in having an abortion which is illegal in some jurisdictions.

To be clear. we are NOT an online abortion clinic. We are an eco-feminist enterprise providing data and information under rights to free expression so a woman can make HER own choice on whether to terminate her pregnancy.

This is why we do not respond to personal emails. We cannot advise any woman who asks us a question about her situation. We can only respond in general.

10. Is a surgical abortion better or worse than a natural induced miscarriage?

In a perfect world that respects women's reproductive rights, a surgical abortion is easier and more effective. However, depending on where you live in the world, the chances of having a surgical abortion without negative consequences are slim.

In most of the world, a woman does not have access to surgical abortion. If she does,  her experience is very dependent on the politics of the region in which she lives.

'Abortion shaming', even by staff who are part of the surgical process is a very powerful deterrent. Nurses, doctors, and other medical staff may not even say anything at all. But simply the attitude they display when communicating with a woman with an unwanted pregnancy can be traumatizing in itself.

In the USA there is the additional burden of demonstrators outside many abortion clinics, especially in the US. This is a reason why many women will not seek a surgical abortion even if they live in an area where it is legal.

If you have access to a location where surgical abortion is legal but there is the possibility of abortion shaming try to seek the support of an 'Abortion Doula'; a woman or man who supports you in your decision and goes to the clinic with you and defends your choice to any staff who may differ.

11. Who created this site and why?

This site was created and managed by the Hedonisia Hawaii EcoFeminist Community.

EcoFeminist Interns came from around the world to share their expertise and research abilities. This allowed us to continually improve the quality of information offered on this site.

Hedonisia Hawaii was destroyed by the 2018 Kilauea volcano eruption. While grieving we have continued work on our portfolio of Lava to Lotus web projects which this site is a part of.
