As the other respondents have said, miscarriages tend to occur if there is an underlying problem with the pregnancy, not related to anything you can do. It would be important to book early and see your doctor regularly. Folate tablets would be a good idea. Other than this, a healthy lifestyle with balanced diet, no smoking or alcohol would be advisable.
