I read the book, Our Bodies, Ourselves, many years ago (1976) which details women’s health and personal choices and also found that A high fruitarian or plant-based vegan diet is more healthy, puts one in better control of mind (urges), body (hormones), and spirit, would produce a healthier baby, and may help avoid a spontaneous abortion. I also read online about an economical choice that may be needed by some in challenging times (sexual assault, rape, mental illness, etc.): take high-dose Vitamin C every hour for 24 hours to prevent egg from being fertilized and implanted in the uterus. Obviously it’s best to avoid pregnancy until it’s wanted which is what I did. I advise women to not drink alcohol or take drugs and especially not with men and learn to be happy by yourself via fruitarian or vegan diet and if needed a rescued dog for companionship and protection. The natural fertility method of tracking monthly cycle and mucous described in Your Fertility Signals is good. There are more books for women here.
“Note that “around half of all fertilized eggs die and are lost spontaneously, usually before the woman knows she is pregnant (ie: a missed period followed by heavy flow). Among women who know they are pregnant, 15 to 20 out of every 100 will have a miscarriage. Most miscarriages occur during the first 7 weeks of pregnancy.”
Common recognized causes include:
Abnormal fetal development.
Genetically balanced parental translocation.
Incompetent cervix (second trimester).
Endocrine – eg, luteal phase deficiency, polycystic ovarian syndrome.
Most miscarriages are caused by chromosome problems that make it impossible for the baby to develop. Usually, these problems are not related to the mother’s or father’s genes.
Other possible causes of miscarriage include:
Drug and alcohol abuse
Exposure to environmental toxins
Physical problems with the mother’s reproductive organs
Problem with the body’s immune response
Serious body-wide diseases in the mother (such as uncontrolled diabetes)
