1 of 4 pregnancy ends in miscarriage: 6 techniques to avoid it
Miscarriage is the loss of a pregnancy that occurs in the first 20 weeks. The truth is that most miscarriages during the first months of pregnancy are caused by genetic abnormalities that far exceed a mother’s control. In most cases, there is nothing you can do to cause a miscarriage, and nothing you can do to prevent it. This is a very difficult condition but here are 6 techniques to avoid miscarriages.
1. First visit a gynaecologist before getting pregnant:
Meeting a gynaecologist is very effective in detecting if you have risk factors that can lead to miscarriage. He will ask questions about your health, do some tests, check the vaccines you have and also check your blood type and rhesus.
2. Balanced diet:
Taking vitamin supplements is important but the diet is more important. The best diet to adopt is to eat more fresh fruits and vegetables. Avoid unpasteurized daily products such as milk and raw cheese but also meat and raw fish.
3. Exercise in moderation:
Obesity or overweight is a risk factor for having a miscarriage. It is therefore necessary to maintain a healthy weight to prevent miscarriage. Do exercises such as jogging, walking, yoga, dancing and swimming. A little secret is to massage your belly. This will help increase the circulation of blood in the uterus.
4. Limit your caffeine intake:
Caffeine can cross the placenta barrier, reach your baby and cause damage. Do not take more than 2 cups of coffee a day. Preferably you will have to take tea that contains little caffeine.
5. Avoid drugs, street drugs, alcohol and cigarettes:
If you smoke, the baby also smokes and if you take alcohol, the baby will drink too and it will destroy it. Do not take street medications especially without prescription by your doctor. But also avoid places where people smoke, especially bars, snacks, etc.
6. Avoid stress:
Stress makes your body difficult to fight the disease and keep you healthy. The possibilities of having an infection are very high and will cause a miscarriage. By avoiding stress, you are 60% less likely to have a miscarriage. The simple techniques to avoid stress are: breathing exercises, spending time doing meditation or reflection and yoga.
