According to a United Kingdom study, one in every 6 women who suffer from miscarriage early in their pregnancy has a prolonged stress. But having a miscarriage is not at all uncommon. Around 10% of women have a miscarriage problem before the 20th week of pregnancy. There are many reasons for having a miscarriage such as hormonal imbalance, weak immunity, blood clotting problem, thyroid or diabetes, smoking, uterine problems, etc.
In most cases, miscarriage cannot be stopped but we can increase the chances of healthy pregnancy by adopting some measures which reduces the risk of miscarriage.
Healthy lifestyle – Unhealthy lifestyle greatly increases the risk of miscarriage. Habits such as smoking or passive smoking, consuming alcohol, taking drugs, increase the chances of miscarriage. Regular exercise, adequate sleep, a balanced and regular diet increase your chances of a healthy pregnancy. Reducing caffeine intake is also right during pregnancy.
