I have been to many support groups, and message boards that are for mom's who have had the tragedy of a stillbirth. I have noticed that the majority of these mothers, myself included, have lost their precious babies due to cord issues. I just cannot understand why this still happens. I have been educating myself about this silent killer since my son passed last January, UCA account for the same amount or more deaths as toxemia, gestational diabetes, group b strep. You are continually monitored throughout your pregnancy for these, so why not this? In my case it was seen on two prior ultrasounds. My dr.s didn't think anything about it, but my son could have been a healthy 1 year old, had they taken it seriously. I am crying as I write this because I feel as though this is such a needless tragedy! To know the pain that you all are experience, my heart goes out to each and everyone of you!
