Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I will try and get more advice on this, but we should be carefully about considering miscarriage as a disease. It is a natural process which kicks in in a significant % of pregnancies and I'm not sure it has any direct impact or taxing effect on the immune system. However the apparent fact that Savita was left in extreme discomfort and pain for several days hardly did her general health and resilience any favours. Her dilated cervix and ruptured membrane should have been the most obvious and immediate indicators of a risk of septicemia, especially in a hospital environment.
