Answer: Hi Tammy, There isn’t really anything that you can do to prevent a miscarriage. Quite often a baby miscarries because there was a problem with the way it was formed at conception and it will never be able to grow into a healthy child so it is miscarried. A doctor really only tells you to take it easy to help you not feel guilty if the baby does miscarry. Every pregnancy has a 1 in 4 chance of miscarrying. So unfortunately it is a matter of wait and see – once you get to 12 weeks your chances are greatly reduced. Best wishes, Alex
