It is not actually the food itself that can cause miscarriage. There are bacterial and parasitic diseases that can be acquired from foods that can place the pregnancy at risk. For example, toxoplasmosis can be acquired from eating raw meats.

Us uses high frequency sound waves that we cannot hear, but do have energy. Some us techniques involving doppler to look at blood flow are even more energetic. We do not know for sure what that energy could do to a fetus or embryo, so no us unless necessar.
