Objective To determine the risk of recurrent stillbirth. Design Systematic review and meta-analysis of cohort and case-control studies. Data sources Embase, Medline, Cochrane Library, PubMed, CINAHL, and Scopus searched systematically with no restrictions on date, publication, or language to identify relevant studies. Supplementary efforts included searching relevant internet resources as well as hand searching the reference lists of included studies. Where published information was unclear or… Expand
Advanced maternal age and adverse pregnancy outcomes: A systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
It is proposed that placental dysfunction may mediate adverse pregnancy outcome in AMA and stillbirth risk increases with increasing maternal age, not wholly explained by maternal co-morbidities and use of ART. Expand
Risk of recurrent stillbirth: a cohort study
  • SL Wood, S Tang

  • BJOG : an international journal of obstetrics and gynaecology
  • 2021
TLDR
The risk of recurrent antepartum stillbirth is low and given the very low risk in any given gestational week, fetal surveillance is unlikely to be effective and may lead to unnecessary interventions. Expand
No. 369-Management of Pregnancy Subsequent to Stillbirth.
TLDR
This guideline presents a summary of the literature and a general consensus on the management of pregnancies subsequent to stillbirth and perinatal loss and describes a multidisciplinary approach in the provision of antenatal and intrapartum care to women and families with a history of stillbirth.

  • 2020
TLDR
An investigation protocol to help health care providers determine the cause of a fetal death is provided to provide better advice for women regarding possible causes of fetal death and implications for future pregnancies. Expand
Prior stillbirth is a risk factor for stillbirth in a subsequent pregnancy
TLDR
One approach to reduce stillbirths is to identify pregnancies at increased risk of stillbirth; this can help to preventStillbirths by directing additional antenatal care and intervention to those most likely to benefit. Expand
Causes and risk factors for singleton stillbirth in Japan: Analysis of a nationwide perinatal database, 2013–2014
TLDR
This finding suggests that stillbirths occurring among women with known complications are likely already being prevented, and further reduction in stillborns must target small-sized fetuses and nulliparous women. Expand
Advancedmaternal age and adverse pregnancy outcomes: A systematic review andmeta-analysis
Out of 1940 identified titles; 63 cohort studies and 12 case-control studies were included in the meta-analysis. AMA increased the risk of stillbirth (OR 1.75, 95%CI 1.62 to 1.89) with a populationExpand

ABSTRACT Background: Research indicates that the internet is used to source health-related information, including pregnancy-related information. The aim of this study was to examine websites targetedExpand

TLDR
The method and timing of delivery after a stillbirth depends on the gestational age at which the death occurred, maternal obstetric history, and maternal preference, and health care providers should weigh the risks and benefits of each strategy in a given clinical scenario. Expand
Interpregnancy interval and risk of stillbirth: a population-based case control study.
TLDR
The results suggest that women who experience a prior pregnancy loss may benefit from additional counseling on adequate birth spacing to reduce subsequent stillbirth risk. Expand

OBJECTIVE This is a systematic review of the literature on the causes of stillbirth and clinical opinion regarding strategies for its prevention. STUDY DESIGN We reviewed the causes of stillbirthExpand
Major risk factors for stillbirth in high-income countries: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
The raising of awareness and implementation of effective interventions for modifiable risk factors, such as overweight, obesity, maternal age, and smoking, are priorities for stillbirth prevention in high-income countries. Expand
Maternal obesity and risk of stillbirth: a metaanalysis.
TLDR
The metaregression analysis found no evidence that these estimates were affected by selected study characteristics, and a Bayesian random effects model was used to perform the metaanalysis and meetaregression. Expand
Recurrence of stillbirth in sibships: Population-based cohort study.
TLDR
Over time, recurrence of early stillbirth decreased, whereas that of mid/late stillbirth did not change significantly, and a symmetric pattern of recurring stillbirth in similar weight-by-gestation groups was not found. Expand
Association between stillbirth and risk factors known at pregnancy confirmation.
TLDR
Multiple risk factors that would have been known at the time of pregnancy confirmation were associated with stillbirth, particularly the contribution of these factors to racial disparities. Expand
Recurrent stillbirth. Significance and characteristics.
TLDR
Although recurrent stillbirth remains an unsolved problem, improving health care to specific groups within high-risk populations may reduce fetal loss. Expand
Relationship between obesity, ethnicity and risk of late stillbirth: a case control study
TLDR
Pacific ethnicity was not found to be an independent risk factor for late stillbirth in this New Zealand study, and the disparity in stillbirth rates between Pacific and European women can be attributed to confounding factors such as maternal obesity and high parity. Expand
Maternal body mass index and the risk of fetal death, stillbirth, and infant death: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
Even modest increases in maternal BMI were associated with increased risk of fetal death, stillbirth, and neonatal, perinatal, and infant death and weight management guidelines for women who plan pregnancies should take these findings into consideration. Expand
Subsequent birth outcomes after an unexplained stillbirth: preliminary population‐based retrospective cohort study
TLDR
Women who had a previous stillbirth had increased incidences in subsequent births of abnormal glucose tolerance or gestational diabetes (a fourfold increase); induction of labour and elective Caesarean section; fetal distress and postpartum haemorrhage; and forceps and emergency CaesAREan delivery and preterm birth, which were independent of Induction of labour. Expand
The association between stillbirth in the first pregnancy and subsequent adverse perinatal outcomes.
TLDR
A first-pregnancy stillbirth may increase adverse perinatal outcomes in subsequent pregnancy, and Interpregnancy intervals <2 and > or =4 years after stillbirth increased the risk of ischemic placental disease and spontaneous preterm birth. Expand
