Women with repeated miscarriages need not to be disheartened, as their chances of having a healthy baby is the same as those who have never miscarried, scientists have claimed.

The assurance, which comes from a Swedish conference, is likely to offer some comfort to the one per cent of couples who have lost three or more pregnancies in a row through no known cause.

Most recurrent miscarriages are unexplained, meaning there is no obvious cause and no treatment to offer.

But researchers said they can now offer couples more accurate information to help them when they are considering whether or not they want to keep trying for a baby.
