Abstract

Commentary on:
Feodor Nilsson SAndersen PKStranberg-Larsen Ket al. Risk factors for miscarriage from a prevention perspective: a nationwide follow-up study. BJOG 2014;121: 1375–85.

Implications for practice and research
Childbearing at 25–29 years of age, having a normal pre-pregnancy body weight, no alcohol or caffeine consumption, no heavy lifting or night shift work during pregnancy may reduce the risk of miscarriage by 25.2%.

Further research needs to replicate these findings in prospective cohorts and systematic reviews.
