The majority of miscarriages are believed to be caused by genetic problems in the embryo that would prevent a baby from developing normally and surviving. These fatal genetic errors typically are not related to genetic problems in the mother.
In other cases, certain illnesses or medical conditions can cause miscarriage and may increase the risk of miscarriage.
