  • have you been diagnosed with an incompetent cervix? Because what you are talking about is called cerclage and it's used to prevent premature changes in the cervix.

  • They sew your cervix if you have a collapsing cervix. I haven't had this done but a friend of mine did. This isn't done for everyone - it's only specifically to address the kind of miscarriage that results from a weak or collapsing cervix. These are usually miscarriages later in your pregnancy. Your doctor should be able to tell you if this is whats causing the loss. Good luck!
