Myth #7: Miscarriages can be prevented
Reality: Women are often too quick to blame themselves for miscarriage, thinking their exercise or stress levels were the reason, for example. But the truth is, miscarriage is simply a fluke in the overwhelming majority of cases. Miscarriage happens because the embryo’s cells are initially dividing so quickly and, to put it in layman’s terms, a copying mistake is made. Miscarriage is also quite common, affecting 15 to 20 percent of pregnancies.
