Pregnant Women Under Stress May Be at Higher Risk for Stillbirth
Date:3/29/2013

FRIDAY, March 29 (HealthDay News) -- Stressful life events increase women's risk of stillbirth, a new study finds.

Stillbirth is the death of the fetus at 20 or more weeks of pregnancy. There was one stillbirth for every 167 live births in the United States in 2006, according to the U.S. National Center for Health Statistics.

Black women were more likely to report stressful events than white or Hispanic women. This may partly explain why black women have higher rates of stillbirth than white or Hispanic women, the researchers said.

The study, published online March 26 in the American Journal of Epidemiology, was funded by the U.S. National Institutes of Health.

"Because one in five pregnant women has three or more stressful events in the year leading up to delivery, the potential public health impact of effective interventions could be substantial and help increase the delivery of healt
