Can Car Accidents Cause Miscarriage?
It’s a sad fact that traumatic car accidents can cause a miscarriage or other types of pregnancy-related injuries. According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), there are an estimated 1,500 to 5,000 fetal losses each year that result from pregnant mothers in car accidents. Pregnant women in their first trimester are especially at risk of miscarriage. If you’ve been involved in a car wreck, it’s vital to see your doctor or OB/GYN immediately if you’re pregnant.
