If the health care professional feels that the patient is having a spontaneous abortion or miscarriage, little can be done in the way of prevention. If the patient is actively miscarrying and the health care professional does not think the patient has a living pregnancy, she will also be seen by an obstetrician (specialist in women's reproductive health) who may recommend ending the pregnancy. A procedure called dilation and curettage (D&C) can be performed or further observation may take place to let nature take its course.
