Comments P.2 left column 6th paragraph: "Stillbirth can be defined as the loss of pregnancy after 22 weeks of gestation, or by a birthweight of ≥500 g, although – as for miscarriage – there is no universal definition, complicating comparisons of studies [ref 70]. Stillbirth is one of the most common causes of pregnancy loss in spite of advances in perinatal medicine, with an estimated 3.2 million cases occurring worldwide annually [ref 77]. Rates are 3 per 1000 births in developed countries, but can approach 45 per 1000 in some developing countries [primary source]."
