Abstract

Stillbirth is a common complication of pregnancy, affecting one in every 160 women in the United States who are pregnant. Stillbirth has a significant adverse medical and psychological impact on families. Identifying the cause of stillbirth can yield recommendations for the management of future pregnancies, provide a risk of recurrence, and give families a sense of closure. The placental examination is one component of a comprehensive stillbirth investigation. A systematic approach to the examination of the placenta is presented, along with an explanation of critical findings that have been associated with stillbirth. A checklist for placental evaluation by the provider who attends the birth is provided, along with information on stillbirth assessment programs.
