How Do You Prevent a Miscarriage?
There is no way to predict or prevent a miscarriage. Certain steps can be taken, however, to give a pregnancy every chance to continue to term.
What Is the Prognosis for Miscarriage?
More than half of women who bleed during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy stop bleeding and end up having a normal pregnancy. The others get more cramping and bleeding and eventually miscarry. Although emotionally unsettling, most women physically handle spontaneous abortions well. A woman may not know whether she are going to miscarry when she leaves the emergency department.
