Thanks for your query.
Your friend needs to be thoroughly investigated before proceeding with this pregnancy.
Some possible causes that I can think of are -
autoimmune conditions like anti phospholipid syndrome
fetal hydrops
genetic or chromosomal anomalies
intra uterine infections
rare congenital syndromes
cervical or uterine abnormalities
thyroid disorders.
She needs to look up a high risk specialist, undergo thorough evaluation and proceed accordingly.
take care.
