Has anyone experienced miscarriage from taking Vitamin C?

My friend was taking lots of vitamin c and her doctor told her to stop taking it when she became pregnant, so she did. However, she still had a miscarriage. This was her first pregnancy and she is very upset, but she has learned much from it. Has anyone else experienced this? I have done a little research since then and found some herbs NOT to take during pregnancy include: Angelica/Dong Quai, Blue COhosh and Black Cohosh varieties, Pennyroyal, and many others. I was actually amazed at how many herbs are contraindicated during pregnancy and thought I would share this knowledge just in case others didn't know. You can do a search to find out more about this. (I receommend using http://www.Goodsearch.com so you can donate to your favorite charity while searching!) Some technical terms are: emmenagogue and oxytocic herbs.

there are a lot of factors that can lead to miscarriage. so it would be advisable tat pregnant woman always consult a doctor if they want to take care of not just their baby but as well as themselves.

I am sorry to hear about your friends miscarriage. I have never had a problem with Vitamin C during either of my pregnancies. I knew that there were some things to avoid while pregnant, but I never thought that Vitamin C would be one of them.
