Stillbirth remains a major and tragic obstetric complication

  • The epidemiology of stillbirth throughout the world
  • The various possible causes of stillbirth
  • The psychological effects on mothers and families who suffer a stillbirth
  • Management of stillbirth
  • Managing pregnancies following stillbirth

Stillbirth: Prediction, Prevention and Management is packed with crucial evidence-based information and practical insights. It enables all obstetric healthcare providers to manage one of the most traumatic yet all too common situations they will encounter.
