Miscarriage Prevention – Homeopathy and Habitual Abortions

 

 

Approximately 15 percent of all recorded pregnancies end in miscarriages. The first three months of pregnancy is the crucial period when such a spontaneous loss of the fetus is most likely to occur. This is also fortunately the only time period during a pregnancy when the fetus poses very little of a risk to the health of the mother carrying it. Miscarriages can be caused by a disease known as toxoplasmosis, a condition leading to the swelling of the glands, the development of aching muscles and the development of persistent but low-grade fevers can indicate toxoplasmosis. This disease is also responsible for many stillbirths and some kinds of serious birth defects in babies. At any rate, miscarriages have a huge emotional impact on the parents-the situation can be very traumatic for both mother and father, the trauma by its nature is greatest for the woman as she is the one who is physically conscious of the loss of the fetus. An emotional as well as a physical shock is induced by the occurrence of a miscarriage in the last three months of pregnancy. The life of the mother is also directly imperiled by losing her child at this point of time in the term of pregnancy and such situation is and should be treated as a serious medical emergency, requiring immediate visits to the hospital.

For a wholesome pregnancy, it is imperative for both men and women to have the most favorable health.
