Stowe, J., Smith, H., Thurland, K. et al. Stillbirths During the COVID-19 Pandemic in England, April-June 2020. JAMA. December 2020. https://doi:10.1001/jama.2020.21369
Stowe et al. reported in a JAMA research letter that there was no evidence of any increase in stillbirths, regionally or nationally, during the COVID-19 pandemic in England. This contrasts with previous findings from a single UK hospital and is reassuring given the concerns about patients, including pregnant women, receiving fewer services or being hesitant to access health care during the pandemic.
