Number of stillbirths

How many stillbirths are there?

More than 2 million babies are stillborn every year worldwide

It is important to know that a stillbirth is a baby born dead after 24 completed weeks of pregnancy.  In case the baby dies before 24 completed weeks, it is known as a miscarriage or late fetal loss.  Statistics do not look good at all.  Believe it or not, more than 2 million babies are stillborn every year worldwide.  Specialists consider that about half could be saved if their mothers had better medical care.  It is important to know that in developing countries, most stillbirths are caused by delivery complications.
