  • There are numerous causes. Google "what causes stillbirth" and you'll see quite a list

  • My friend has had 2 stillborns. Hers were the fault of her OB though. They did an ultrasound on her and saw the cord wrapped around the baby's neck, scheduled a c-section later that day and he was dead, he was alive and healthy in the ultrasound. She had another stillborn boy last December and I don't know why he died. She had a bad feeling late in the pregnancy (baby was still alive) and asked her doctor to deliver the baby and dr refused saying she was paranoid, when he finally did the CS the baby was dead.

  • yeah there are a lot of reasons, like if the cord is too short or too long, but if i were you i wouldnt look into it you'll drive yourself crazy wondering about the 'what ifs' just enjoy your pregnancy :)

  • My daughter was stillborn on November 30th 2010. She wasnt getting any blood to her but the doctor isn't sure what went wrong. I guess some things just happen.
