Factors associated with stillbirth in women with diabetes

Mothers with diabetes have a more than four times greater risk of still birth than pregnant women without the condition, a study published in Diabetologia has found. Fear of stillbirth has major influence on obstetric management, particularly timing of delivery. Researchers analysed population-level data from Scotland to describe timing of stillbirths in women with diabetes and associated risk factors and found that high maternal blood sugar and BMI were risk factors, and babies at the lowest and highest weights were most at risk.
