how to prevent Miscarriage
Miscarriage is all too common. How to prevent miscarriage relies heavily on reducing risk (aa), as opposed to treatment or cure (bb). The risk factors of pregnancy loss are widely publicized (cc). The signs of miscarriage are also well known (dd). The causes behind some miscarriages are established (ee), however almost half go unexplained (ff). Medicine can be effective for recurrent miscarriages but without a clear diagnosis, these treatments struggle for effect (gg).
natural ways to prevent miscarriage
Traditional Chinese medicine (CHM) has famous herbal formulas for protecting the pregnancies of women with the aim to prevent miscarriage. Some formulations have been in use for over 400 years and are widely prescribed in clinical practice (oo). These natural medicines have been put to the test, undergone scientific scrutiny, and compared to modern medicine for safety and effect (kk).
In diagnosed miscarriage cases traditional formulas compare well with modern medicine for effect (dd). When herbal medicine was combined with modern medicine, results were often better than either by themselves (ee). Other studies showed herbal medicine to be superior to modern medicine, with higher birth rates and no reported side-effects (jj).
How do safe & secure baby ingredients work?
Safe & Secure Baby formula is designed to protect pregnancy. and reduce the chances of miscarriage by supporting the mother. Safe & Secure Baby uses ingredients found in prominent traditional formulas for pregnancy support and miscarriage prevention. This formula also contains ingredients used in research that have specific actions and positive effects for women with a history of recurrent miscarriages (ss). In addition, there are ingredients empirically known to improve energy levels, soothe cramps and spasms, and to relax the uterus.
- One main ingredient has an estrogen-like function (10).
- Another has an action similar to progesterone (11).
- Two other ingredients are shown to inhibit uterine smooth muscle contraction and fight oxytocin (12).
when you can’t prevent miscarriage
“Miscarriage cannot be prevented in most cases” is a common line (ii). 10% – 15% of all new pregnancies result in miscarriage within the first trimester. Up to 65% of these miscarriages are blamed on aneuploidy. This is when the growing baby has just one chromosome different from normal and the body rejects it via miscarriage (gg). Some studies say miscarriage rates are the same, and embryos with normal chromosomes miscarry just as much as abnormal ones (hh)(ii). Other studies say that ‘unexplained miscarriage’ is probably due to chromosome problems, they just weren’t tested (jj). Correct or not, 0.3% of all babies born do not have the proper number of chromosomes (jj).
IVF commonly uses genetic testing on fertilized eggs. This allows them to find the euploid embryos (ones with the proper number of chromosomes) to be used for transfer. Natural pregnancies have a 10% – 15% miscarriage rate, however, IVF pregnancies have a 22% miscarriage rate (kk).
When it comes to recurrent miscarriages, chromosomal problems drop down to 2% – 5% (hh). Recurrent miscarriages are poorly understood, with 50% going unexplained (hh).
how to reduce the risk of pregnancy loss
Smoking, drinking, drugs, and eating the wrong foods are lifestyle factors that increase the risk of pregnancy loss. They are also known to cause lifelong damage to the unborn child. Eliminating these elements during pregnancy is widely accepted as the right thing to do. However, this general health advice is promoted for all people, not just pregnant women. While reducing risk, avoiding them may not prevent a miscarriage.
Keeping up with demand.
A pregnancy puts enormous strain on the body as it undergoes the significant changes necessary to nurture and accommodate the developing baby. These changes begin after conception and affect every organ and system in the body (aa). Women often report they feel fatigued and ‘core tired’, beginning from the first few weeks of pregnancy. The feeling is the result of the body adapting by redirecting energy away from the mother and towards the child.
If the body does not have the energy and resources to support the mother, child, and itself, a miscarriage is created to alleviate the burden and preserve health. Once a miscarriage starts, there is little that can be done to save the pregnancy. Supplement your energy reserves. and help your body through this challenging transition phase.
The majority of first miscarriages are due to aneuploidy (wrong number of chromosomes) (gg). When it comes to recurrent miscarriages, chromosomal problems drop down to 2% – 5% (hh). There are many risk factors that can contribute to a miscarriage, but not necessarily create a miscarriage. Recurrent miscarriages are poorly understood, with 50% going unexplained (hh).
Once a miscarriage starts, there is little that can be done to save the pregnancy. Securing a pregnancy is all about prevention, not cure.
Medical prevention strategies for unexplained recurrent pregnancy loss are low dose aspirin for those with miscarriages after 13 weeks or progestin therapy for those with more than 3 miscarriages (nn). In an odd quirk of fate, after 4 or more losses in a row, the chances of carrying a pregnancy to full-term increase beyond 60%, without any treatment! (nn).
While risk factors can be identified, the preventative treatments available have limitations, especially in the cases of unexplained pregnancy loss. Overall results can vary significantly depending on the underlying cause, however, a clear diagnosis tends to improve full-term pregnancy rates (mm).
Traditional formulations contain many natural active ingredients that have synergistic effects when used in combination and impact a wide variety of targets (hh). Individual ingredients can be studied for their mechanism of action on the body and may be compared with those seen in drug research in some meaningful way. However, to follow the effects of a traditional formulation for more than a few targets is beyond the scope of research.
As a result, the true value of a traditional formulation lies with the end result. In this case, more full-term pregnancies than the control groups, and few adverse effects were normal across the spectrum of miscarriage patients. As such, the treatment can be considered as low-risk with a positive chance for results.
