Social media talks about Miscarriages: no more a taboo subject

Mark Zuckerberg (Founder and CEO of Facebook) used his social networking power to talk openly about miscarriages which is no more a taboo subject. He firmly believes that these accidents occur due to biological complications and the couples are not at fault.

This story received fame in almost every corner of the world with 49 thousand shares, 1.7 million likes, and 109 thousand comments.

According to Dr. Anuradha Kapoor, Head of department of Gynaecology at Max Hospital, miscarriages are not triggered by stress, oral contraceptives, foods like eggs or dry fruits, walking fast, and doing exercises but instead occur as a result of chromosomal abnormalities or infections.

The chances are more in the first trimester of pregnancy (one in every four) after which the probability gradually drops.

Dr Bandana Sodhi, gynaecologist at Moolchand Hospital, stated that sex during pregnancy might be painful sometimes but it does not pose any risk to the expecting mother and is thus considered safe.

She further suggested that pregnant women should do regular prenatal yoga or antenatal physiotherapy and include more proteins in her diet.

The experts explain that it is not necessary that one miscarriage will subsequently lead to another as they are simply genetic aberrations.
