Non-medically attended miscarriage in young teenager, 1970s.

Time period: late 1970s Location: Western setting.

A 14 year old girl who is not very cluey wakes one night with extreme gut pains, then to her horror, a gush of blood. I'm talking puddle-on-the-mattress amount of blood - probably about 500mls. Collapse ) She didn't realise she was pregnant - the story includes a coercive older sibling and the girl not realising the consequences.

Research done: medical papers and publications about hidden teen pregnancies, giving birth with no medical attention, ditto miscarriage.
