* Possible, but not likely. A miscarriage is usually caused by either a chromosomal abnormality or a blunt-force trauma to the pelvic area. Stress can cause a baby to be unusually small or have other health problems though. * Stress is absolutely not a cause of miscarriage. That could stress a lot of women out unnecessarily!

Yes, too much stress can cause a miscarriage. That would usually happen in the beginning though.

If there were also physical injury, but emotional stress alone, even from a traumatic event, has not been shown to cause miscarriage.

Lots of stress and physical injuries harsh enough for the mother to sustain significant damage herself can cause miscarriage. Since fist fights entail both high stress and significant physical damage, your answer is yes.

Yes. Stress can sometimes lead to miscarriage or something being severly wrong with the child when its born. God Bless
