  • I don't see why not. That would be a good question for your doctor.

  • Generally, no, because the uterus is in labor mode, and doesn't stop until the placenta falls off. I could be wrong. I'd ask your doc. I'm pretty certain that it doesn't generally work that way.

  • a friend of mine was preg with twins, one died in utero they had to leave her in there until the other was ready to come out. the stillborn started labor and the healthy baby was born at 31 weeks. so i would say no but i am curious about this as well.
