HEALTH: Obesity could put pregnant women at greater risk of delivering stillborn baby
Being obese or overweight could put pregnant women at greater risk of having a stillborn baby.
Scientists say a new study shows that even a modest increase in an obese pregnant woman's weight is linked to an increased risk of fetal death, stillbirth and infant death.
