Icon106 Miscarriage caused by singing

Comment: I'm a huge Rolling Stones fan, and I really love the version of
Gimme Shelter with Merry Clayton singing a duet with Mick Jagger.

I've looked Merry up on Google, and it led to a cryptic
remark about how she "reportedly suffered a miscarriage due to the intensity of
her voice". While it's true she is extremely powerful in that song, I want
to know (1) if it is possible to sing so hard you can have a miscarriage,
and if so, whether (2) this really happened to Merry.

IF it's true, she probably had an at-risk pregnancy already.

Seems like a prime example of the post hoc, ergo propter hoc logical fallacy to me.
