    There are warning signs that a mother maybe at risk of having a still birth. If a mother is experiencing a reducing movement of a fetus in her womb or not moving at all and also bleeding is one of the predisposing factor. Once a baby died in the a woman's uterus the mother mostly have a labor within two weeks afterwards the death of the fetus.However, for women it is too much to wait for the labor to start. after diagnosing that the mother is having a stillbirth the doctor can induce the birth immediately. If the death of the baby has not been determined there are diagnostic test to be performed on the placenta and to the baby.But unfortunately greater than one third of stillbirth have unknown cause.
