Midwife, I am 8 weeks pregnant. Last night I was bleeding so much that I came out a lot of clots, I had to change my sanitary napkin about 15-30 minutes. Until now it’s still bleeding, if you may know how to stop this bleeding and is this what is called a miscarriage ?? Thank you, midwife, please answer

Dear Mother Rosiana,
Previously I will give an overview of the signs of a miscarriage:
Bleeding is the most common sign. The bleeding that occurs can only be in the form of spots that last a long time to heavy bleeding. Sometimes a part of the tissue is torn that comes out along with the blood. For example, a part of the tissue in the uterine wall that is torn or the amniotic sac torn.
Stomach cramps or spasms
This sign feels like stomach cramps at the beginning of menstruation. These cramps are usually repeated over a long period of time. Cramps or spasms can also occur in the pelvic area.
Pain in the lower abdomen
Pain in the lower abdomen occurs for a long time. Apart from around the abdomen, pain can also occur in the lower pelvis, groin, and genital area. This pain occurs within a few hours to a few days after symptoms of bleeding appear.
