I was reading up on Stillborns, and I came across a website that said they are in-fact hereditary. My mother lost her child at 6 months which was her first child. I was just wondering if they are hereditary cause that's scary, but other websites say they are not. I'm a paranoid freak now lol seems silly, i should stop reading websites lol they just make me lose my mind. I ordered a doppler and was planning to give it back after 1 month, lol i'm not to sure i want to do that. I might keep it till I give birth. Seems like a good thing to do to ease my paranoid mind for the next 5 months.
I totally depends on the cause of the stillbirth. Genetic causes definitely can be. Placental causes may be. My mother's first baby was stillborn due a malformation in her uterus, which caused placental abruption. I did not inherit that malformation, and Cora's stillbirth was a cord accident, so they're not related at all. It's just sort of a freak accident we both have had them. My mother's mother has too, but her uterus is fine, and her boy's cause of death was never determined, so that seems to be just a freakish coincidence too.
Does your mom know why her baby was stillborn? It might be a good question to ask her.
Just because your mother had one doesn't automatically guarantee you will, even if there were heritable factors involved.
Brittanie's the one who knows this sort of stuff, but I would suggest that you avoid websites like that!!! LOL I am banned from WebMD symptom checker, and other websites that list diseases, or anything baby related (such as things that could go wrong.) I have learned my lesson finally. LOL
