Blueberry juice can be used to aid in miscarriage, as long as you are careful not to exceed the amount of juice you would normally drink to have a miscarriage, a nutritionist says.

In her analysis, the doctor determined that a typical American woman who consumed the equivalent of about a quart of fresh blueberries and one ounce of lemon juice would need to consume between 20 and 40g of juice per day to have an acceptable miscarriage rate.
“If you’re going to drink more than the recommended amount, you need to reduce the amount you’re consuming to keep the miscarriage rate down,” Stroud told ABC News.
“The best way to do that is to drink the amount that is appropriate to the miscarriage,” she added.
The researchers analyzed how much juice women would need over a 10-day period to have the miscarriage rates they wanted.
Dr. Helen A. Stroud’s nutrition analysis shows that a woman needs between 20-40g of fresh fruit juice to have miscarriage rates equal to the one expected.
Dr. A. Helen V. Stoughton/University of QueenslandHealth experts agree that the best way for a woman to have her pregnancy tested is to consume as little juice as possible.
But if you want to be more informed about the risks and benefits of fruit juice, you should consult your healthcare provider about whether or not to consume more than what’s listed.
Stroud told News24 that while it’s not possible to calculate the best amount of fruit or juice to consume during pregnancy, there are certain fruits that have the ability to help women with miscarriage.
For instance, she says, berries are particularly effective for helping with the symptoms of miscarriage.
“Bergamot and raspberries can both help to ease nausea and help to prevent the miscarriage, and blackberries can help to alleviate nausea, but there are many other factors that can help as well,” she said.
“Some of these factors are listed on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s list of ingredients for certain products, and there are a number of other things that can contribute to miscarriage and miscarriage-related symptoms.”
