There is a need to be alerted if there is a miscarriage three or more times before 20 weeks of pregnancy. In scientific language, it is called recurrent loss.

If you do this, the danger in the child can be reduced and pregnancy can be made successful.

After the investigation confirmed the danger, Angelina underwent surgery and also shared the matter with the public.
