Thanks for your query.
WIth such a bad obstetric history, your friend should have definitely take supplements.
But more importantly, consulted a High risk pregnancy specialist and undergone thorough pre and post conceptional counselling and investigations.
Right now, at 14 weeks, it makes no sense to terminate the pregnancy.
SHe should have been evaluated for uterine anomalies, autoimmune causes of abortion, infections, genetic causes etc.
Even now, with an ongoing pregnancy, she should be thoroughly evaluated for the same, have appropriate genetic testing done on the fetus, and take more than routine supplements to ensure a viable pregnancy this time
Take care.
