TRIGGER WARNING: This episode talks about miscarriage and early pregnancy loss.
This episode talks about whether nutrition can help prevent another miscarriage, which affects 1 in 4 confirmed pregnancies. Now, it is never your fault! It isn’t something you did or didn’t eat, but I know you want to try and prevent the heartbreak of losing another little one and often we turn to the things we can control like diet. So here’s the evidence around nutrition, diet and miscarriage.
For support for those going through or have been through a miscarriage or an early pregnancy loss please see the organisations and reach our to your GP for a mental health care plan and a referral to an experienced psychologist.
