Dr G. Thapasya Reddy, Dr Geeta Jain, Dr Chandra Kumar Singh

Abstract :

 Objective: Present study was conducted to know the incidence of intra–uterine fetal death, probable etiology for antepartum and intrapartum fetal deaths and management of the same and of antenatal care in prevention of intrauterine fetal deaths. Materials and Methods: Pregnancies diagnosed with IUFD and the cases of stillbirths were studied prospectively . Ante partum and intra partum events leading to fetal demise were recorded, socio–demographic and clinical characters were noted. Result: In study there were 8233 deliveries out of which 344 were IUFDs and stillbirths. The incidence of prenatal loss was 41.78 per 1000 live births. Conclusion: Despite advances in diagnostic and therapeutic modalities the rate of still birth is high. Socio–cultural background, poverty, illiteracy, lack of adequate antenatal care and inaccessible health care are the reasons that predispose women to IUFD and stillbirth. Majority of fetal wastage can be prevented with universal and improved antenatal care.
