child, is expelled, together with the contents of the womb, the same 

precautions should in general be observed as in childbirth. 

 

 

TO PREVENT MISCARRIAGE, 

 

when it is threatened, or on the appearance of the first symptoms, the 

patient should lie down and be as quiet as possible; live on very 

light diet; bowels be kept freely open; and an injection of thirty 

drops of laudanum should be given in half a pint of slippery elm tea. 

Should flooding be present, cold lemonade should be drank freely, and 

cloths wet with cold or ice water applied to the thighs and lower part 

of the birthplace, which should be repeated until the flooding is 

relieved. 

 

 

MEANS OF PREVENTING ABORTION. 

 

To prevent abortion, women of weak or relaxed habit should use solid 

food, avoiding great quantities of tea, coffee, or other weak or 

watery liquors. They should go soon to bed and rise early, and take 

frequent exercise, but avoid fatigue. They should occasionally take 

half a pint of the decoction of lignum-vitae, boiling an ounce of it in 

a quart of water for five minutes. 

 

If of a full habit, they ought to use a spare diet and chiefly of the 

vegetable kind, avoiding strong liquors and everything that may tend 

to heat the body or increase the quantity of blood; and when the 

symptoms appear, should take a dram of powdered nitre in a cup of 

water gruel every five or six hours. 

 

In both cases the patient should sleep on a hard mattress and be kept 

cool and quiet; the bowels should be kept regular by a pill of white 

walnut extract or bitterroot.
