Pregnancy can already be stressful both physically and emotionally to a woman’s reproductive life. Any risk of miscarriage that can bring more of these pressures should be avoided.

Here are several tips you can apply to lessen risk of pregnancy loss.

Observe hand washing

It is important to practice good hand hygiene. Catching a great number of viral or bacterial infections causing miscarriage, infant deaths or stillbirths can be easily avoided with proper hand washing.

Get checked by your doctor or midwife

Seek prenatal care as soon as you learn of your pregnancy. You may be having health problems or complications such as pregnancy induced hypertension, gestational diabetes, certain abnormalities in your reproductive system or STIs (sexually transmitted infections) that you are not aware of, so talking to your ob-gyn or midwife the soonest possible will greatly help uncover and manage it.

Get your flu shots

Studies show that flu shots do not increase miscarriage risks, so there is no reason to fear getting your flu shots. It is falling ill to flu during pregnancy that poses risk of pregnancy loss.

Eat healthy

Eating a balanced diet is crucial during pregnancy. Consuming whole grains, vegetables and fruits significantly lessen your risk of complications brought by pregnancy, according to research.

Lose extra pounds

According to studies conducted worldwide, obese women are more prone to pregnancy loss than women who maintain a healthy weight.

This is because excessive weight has been associated with health problems during pregnancy such as gestational diabetes, preeclampsia, premature birth and other types of miscarriage. Therefore, monitor your weight and shed those extra pounds.

Drink your medications

Consult your doctor and follow recommendations for your prescriptions. Take prenatal vitamins if you’re planning to get pregnant, or religiously take your folic acid during the first trimester of your pregnancy. Adequate intake of folic acid is crucial to preventing formation of congenital defects, which can lead to pregnancy loss.

Also, if you are diagnosed with chronic illnesses such as diabetes, hypertension or lupus, take your medications because these conditions can cause miscarriage when untreated or uncontrolled.

Stop smoking

Smoking is considered to be  a major health risk causing diseases like high blood pressure, stroke and cancer. Smoking in pregnant women results in infertility and pregnancy loss.

So quit the deadly habit since it will not only ensure your baby’s life but yours, too, for your parenthood years.

Quit drinking

You might as well stop consuming alcohol, too, while you are pregnant. Fetal alcohol syndrome is not the only reason to be worried about drinking alcohol but the potential risk of miscarriage.

Practice safe sex

If you are sexually active, just do so in a safe manner. Get screened for STIs upon prenatal checkup or even before trying to get pregnant if you or your partner have multiple sexual partners.

Always use condoms until you and your partner have been screened since STIs can cause neonatal births and miscarriages.
