Study reveals stillbirths as a global problem

    Every day more than three thousand women around the world go into labour, only to suffer the heartbreak of a stillbirth.

    Now a new study by a leading medical journal, that revealed that every year 2.6m babies die in the last 12 weeks of pregnancy, shows just how widely the problem has been overlooked.
