Still births refers to the death that occurs prior to total removal or expulsion from the mother of a baby born from human conception that is equal or greater than 22 weeks gestation (WHO and ICD 10 Code cut off point) and that does not represent an induced premature termination. The cause of death is the fact that, following an extraction or expulsion the fetus doesn’t breathe, or exhibit any other sign of life, for example, heartbeat or pulsation of the umbilical cord and definite movements of muscles that are voluntary. Heartbeats must be distinguished from temporary heart contractions. Respiration is distinct from sporadic respiratory attempts or gasps.
