A study suggests extreme stress during pregnancy could result in a stillbirth.
Researchers from the national center for health statistics surveyed more than 2,000 women on stressful events that occurred in the year before they gave birth. Most women reported at least one event like losing a job or caring for a sick loved one.
Those who had multiple stressors did have an increased risk for stillbirth. African-American were most likely to report experiencing a major stress event.
