Miscarriages usually occur during the first trimester of the pregnancy. These are often the result of factors that are out of the control of the pregnant women and, thereby, the majority of miscarriages cannot be prevented. Undoubtedly, experiencing a miscarriage can take a heavy toll on the mental health of a woman, which is why most women who went through such a harrowing experience need counseling to help them cope with the loss of their baby. The most common symptoms of a miscarriage include:
- cramping and pain in the lower abdomen
- a discharge of fluid from the vagina
- a discharge of tissue from the vagina
- no longer experiencing the symptoms of pregnancy
- vaginal bleeding
- mild to severe back pain
The main source of PFAS on military bases is aqueous film-forming foam, also known as AFFF, a fire suppressant used to put out fires stemming from jet fuel and petroleum by military firefighters and trainees. Because they are forever chemicals, PFAS persist in the environment, which makes the job of the Environmental Protection Agency very difficult, as they are currently striving to remove the toxic agents from these contaminated military bases. If you were stationed at one of these military bases with your husband or by yourself while you were pregnant and experienced a miscarriage, you are entitled to financial compensation, which we can help you recover from the liable parties.
