Does Abdominal Trama Accidents Cause Stillbirth
With difficulty: Unfortunately it's not always evident. Examination of the stillborn sometimes shows us cord problems or obvious birth defects. The placenta is examined for problems, an autopsy can be ordered on the infant looking for birth defects. Chromosomes & blood tests looking for abnormalities (diabetes, lupus, infection, etc) are also done. However, many times the reason is unexplained or unclear. ...Read more

I watched a monitor abnormality during labor turn out to be a baby gripping his cord hard during contractions, causing a dangerous reduction in heart rate.That kid turned out fine, but it points out that sometimes we can't find evidence after the fact ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I had a full term stillbirth apparently caused by a very small placental abruption. What may have caused this? What are the chances of reoccurrence?
Reocurrence: I am so sorry about the loss of your baby. Some studies have shown recurrence rates to be one in eight, while some have reported a ten fold increase in rate. Whether or not this recurs depends upon the causation and on the presence of the predisposing factors: pregnancy induced hypertension or chronic hypertension, external trauma, cigarette smoking and/or the use of Cocaine and alcohol. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
