Breastfeeding and Miscarriage. Although there are numerous conflicting opinions on the issue of breastfeeding during pregnancy, no research has ever found an increased risk of miscarriage in women who continue breastfeeding an older child during pregnancy. 1. In the past, doctors used to advise women to stop nursing when they became pregnant again.
According to a new study reported on in Perspectives on Sexual Reproductive Health, exclusive breastfeeding during pregnancy may elevate the risk of miscarriage to a similar degree as conceiving after age 40. 1 Importantly, in the same study, mothers exhibited no added risk if they were giving their children complementary foods while breastfeeding and pregnant. There is a extremely slight chance that breastfeeding causing contractions that may cause a miscarriage, but this is very unlikely to happen with healthy pregnancies in the first two trimesters.
The amount of oxytocin released in response to breastfeeding is typically minimal, and the uterus isn’t ready to respond to that call to shrink back to pre-pregnancy size at these early. Generally, the answer is no, breastfeeding won’t cause miscarriage in every case. But before you run off, worry free, you have to know that this isn’t a black and white world. Breastfeeding can impact your pregnancy, but just because it can, doesn’t mean it will. Mothers who breastfed exclusively during pregnancy had a significantly higher risk of miscarriage vs mothers who breastfed during pregnancy but also gave complementary foods to.
Many women fear that breastfeeding may cause harm to their unborn baby by increasing their risk of miscarriage. This belief is supported by the fact that the pregnancy hormone that aids contractions during labour is released during breastfeeding too and thus may cause miscarriage. 2. There is, however, one situation where breastfeeding during pregnancy is NOT considered safe. For moms who have a history of miscarriages or preterm labor (labor beginning before 37 weeks gestation) with previous pregnancies, breastfeeding may increase the risk of these events occurring again.
This is because oxytocin, the hormone released during breastfeeding that stimulates contractions, is usually released in such a small amount during breastfeeding that is not enough to cause preterm labor. Such contractions are also harmless to the fetus and rarely increase the chances of having a miscarriage. The emotional state of women during pregnancy: the emotional state of women during pregnancy including being depressed or stressed is not linked to the increased risk of having a miscarriage. Having a fright or shock during pregnancy: if you suffer from a fright or shock during pregnancy, it may also not increase your risk of having a miscarriage.
However, pregnancy can cause changes in your level of comfort and sexual desire. Can sex during pregnancy cause a miscarriage? Having sex during pregnancy won’t provoke a miscarriage.
Most miscarriages occur because the fetus isn’t developing normally.
