  • if you are at a high risk of miscarriages then bed rest is the best you could do for your body. you will also not want to smoke or drink and no drugs that could easly cause a miscarriage. learn yoga or some relaxing exercise to do and try to eat healthy. but stay off the feet at all time that you dont need to be if your at high risk but sometimes miscarriages happen for no rhyme or reason.

  • Not a lot you can do to prevent a m/c if it's gonna happen it's gonna happen. Although smoking during pregnancy increases the risk.

  • severe illnesses like uncontrolled diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, or lupus, major injury, abnormalities in the uterus, like scar tissue or uterine fibroids, smoking, doing drugs, and those who have had one before are all risk factors. some things you obviously can't control like illnesses, but the drinking and drugs part you can. each pregnancy is a roll of the dice. I know from personal experience.

  • well, i guess it depends on if you have had one before or if you're just wondering. if you've had many miscarriages the ob may place a cerclage (stitch in the cervix) if you have a history of early dilation, and bed-rest. sometimes a miscarriage happens because there was something wrong with the baby or placenta. obviously you can't control that. things you can do in general to make an early miscarriage less likely are limiting your caffeine intake during the first trimester, obviously don't drink or do drugs, try to keep a low level of stress and lead a healthy lifestyle. but gl and don't worry...if you have a history make sure your ob is experienced with high risk pregnancies!

  • Many miscarriages are due to defects that would not allow the embryo or fetus to live or develop properly. These cannot be prevented.
