Abstract: Pregnancy loss, which affects about 1 in 4 pregnancies, is often a traumatic, although unacknowledged, event which may alter prenatal stress and investments in subsequent pregnancies. Using Norwegian registry data, we exploit the random nature of single, early miscarriages to examine the impact of previous pregnancy loss on maternal investment, the birth and educational outcomes of subsequent children, and parental labor market outcomes. Pregnancy loss initially improves subsequent maternal investment and child outcomes, but effects dissipate over time.

Joint work with Deirdre Coy, Orla Doyle and Rita Ginja.
