What is stillbirth?

A stillbirth is the loss of the pregnancy; it is when a fetus dies during birth or during the last half of pregnancy.

Reports may be affected by other conditions and/or medication side effects. We ask about general symptoms (anxious mood, depressed mood, fatigue, pain, and stress) regardless of condition.
