In many cases, a woman can do little to prevent a miscarriage. However, having pre-conception and prenatal care (before becoming pregnant and during pregnancy) is the best prevention available for all complications associated with pregnancy. Miscarriages caused by systemic disease often can be prevented by detection and treatment of the disease before pregnancy occurs. A woman also can decrease her risk of miscarriage by avoiding environmental hazards, such as infectious diseases, X-rays, drugs and alcohol, and high levels of caffeine.1
