23yo female last pregnacy resulted in a stillbirth at 38weeks placenta stopped working. Preg again wagt are the chances of happening again?
Difficult to say: It would depend on why the "placenta stopped working". Was there any testing done? Any evidence of diabetes, uncontrolled blood pressure, pre-eclampsia, blood clotting disorder, etc? Having more information would be helpful in answering that question. None-the less extra vigilance during a subsequent pregnancy is required. Early testing, ultrasounds, etc. Good Luck! ...Read more

Miscarriage: In reality the majority of pregnancies end in miscarriage. This common phenomenon usually happens before the female realizes she is pregnant.

Are the chances high of a reoccurant placenta abruption after having one at 32 weeks which resulted in stillbirth?Dr's have said it looked like a fluk
Recurrence rate: The most recent literature is putting recurrence rate between 5-15%. The risk is even higher if the initial abruption was considered to be severe. When the abruption is severe enough to kill the fetus, as in your case, there is a 7% incidence of the same outcome in a future pregnancy, unfortunately. There aren't any studies that demonstrate interventions lower the risk. I wish you the best. ...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
At 30 wks ultrasound there is a single loop of umbilical cord loosely entwining baby's neck..is there any risk?.what are the chances of stillbirth?
Chances low: It is not uncommon to have the cord around the neck before birth. It may become disentangled naturally. Sometimes during labor if the cord is around the neck the infant may have fetal distress that can be picked up by fetal monitoring during labor. I would not be too worried right now as long os the fetus shows signs of movement. Your OB doc can follow this during the pregnancy. ...Read more

I am not aware of : Folic acid increasing the chance of twins, but it will reduce the chances of a specific birth defect, called neural tube defect, which occurs before the woman even knows she is pregnant. That is why prenatal vitamins are important for any woman trying to become pregnant. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Which is a safer method for delivery; induced labor or c-section? My granddaughter is 19 yrs old. With gestational diabetes. Today with her ob visit they are talking about induced labor to bypass any chance of 'stillbirth' for her child. They have passed
It varies: If this has affected you, I am sorry for your loss. The death of a child before or after birth will strain the relationship in ways that do not make sense. Now is a time to work hard to reaffirm your love for one another. Ask your physician about support groups; there is no one-size-fits-all answer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Stillbirth: The cause of the first stillbirth would help determine your recurrence risk. In general, there is a 3 - 5% risk of recurrence. Older women however have a greater chance of stillbirth. A consultation with an maternal fetal medicine specialist may help you estimate your recurrence risk and plan your next pregnancy. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Maybe: If your stillbirth occurred in the second half of pregnancy (greater than 20 weeks), your body needs time to recover from the physical and nutritional demands of pregnancy. Pregnancies in less than 6 months can be associated with a slightly higher risk for preterm delivery and growth restriction. Nutritionally, you should at least stay on prenatal vitamins or take supplemental folic acid. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Autopsy: The main test on the baby is an autopsy to look for birth defects or other causes for the death. The placenta is examined and cultures done. The mother may have tests for viruses and other infections, diabetes, thyroid or bleeding problems. Even with all these tests it's not unusual to not find an answer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
