Just FYI, there are three important reasons for that:
1) To make sure you're okay, and 2) To make sure you HAVE had a miscarriage and are NOT still pregnant, and 3) To make sure if you did miscarry that you have expelled all of the fetal tissue. Sometimes, miscarriages are incomplete, and in those cases, the remaining tissue needs to be removed.
my friend had a miscarrage, two actualy, and my mom said that if she didnt go to the doctor to get cleaned out some of the fluids could be fatal and she could even die...can that really happen?...

Well, not necessarily fluids, but yes, tissue that is left in the uterus after a miscarriage can cause problems - after all, it was once living tissue and once dead, must begin to decompose. This is one of the reasons listed by Miz Scarlet above that anyone who suspects miscarriage needs an examination by a doctor.
