As many as one in five pregnancies ends in miscarriage. Steinbaum noted that many women in the study who experienced stillbirth tended to be less physically active and had higher rates of diabetes and hypertension, which are associated with the jeopardy for heart disease penies. Those who miscarried more than three times tended to weigh more, which is another risk factor.
