Does taking vitamin C cause miscarriage? Is this safe?

No: Vitamin C in reasonable doses will not do anything to cause miscarriage. Rather than spending $ on vitamins why don't you eat fresh fruits? Best wishes and have a good baby.

Please don't use: Vitamin c to induce a misscarraige. The amount of vitamin c required to do that would be toxic to both the mother and the fetus.
