Re: healthy habits to prevent miscarriage
My advice is to err on the side of caution, especially with herbal supplements. There are only a few herbs that are considered safe during pregnancy, and even then, should be taken in small doses. I drank ginger tea throughout my first trimester to help with nausea (1 cup/day), a folic acid supplement, a calcium pill, and a prenatal vitamin. That's it. Just eat lots of fruits and veggies and take your vitamins, and (unless you have an existing medical condition, including low iron levels, in which case you'd need an iron supplement) you shouldn't need anything else.
