Underweight Moms: Weighed Down by the Risk of Miscarriages

The British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology published a study that looked into the some of the factors that increased the chances of miscarriages// in mothers-to–be.

There are 50% lesser chances of a spontaneous abortion in women who were regular with their intake of fortified iron and vitamin supplements that contain folic acid.
