Stillbirths can be caused as a result of complications with the placenta, diabetes, high blood pressure, infection or lack of oxygen to the baby. It is important to check regular movements of your baby and to seek medical advice if you notice that your baby’s movement are slowing down or if you can feel no movement at all.
You may have a claim for compensation in the following circumstances:
- if you were not monitored appropriately during your pregnancy
- a pre-existing history of diabetes or high blood pressure was not monitored appropriately
- you were not diagnosed and treated for an infection
