No cry at birth: global estimates of intrapartum stillbirths and intrapartum-related neonatal deaths.

Abstract

The aim was to estimate the global numbers of intrapartum stillbirths and intrapartum-related neonatal deaths in 2000. Results indicate that: (1) intrapartum stillbirths are a huge and invisible problem, but are potentially preventable; and (2) intrapartum-related neonatal deaths account for almost 10% of deaths in children under 5 years old.
