About this Research Topic
The goal of this Research Topic is to highlight the experiences, challenges faced in low and middle-income settings, and potential solutions. We are interested in risk factors, epidemiology and clinical insight, and pathophysiology of common causes of stillbirths. Also, we will consider research health systems or policies that address prevention, prediction, postpartum bereavement care, and management of perinatal grief and subsequent (‘rainbow’) pregnancies following stillbirth.
While we are particularly interested in intervention studies, we will accept original research articles that provide new insights, including primary quantitative, qualitative, or mixed methods research; interventional clinical trials; pilot/feasibility studies of interventions; scoping reviews; systematic reviews, and meta-analyses. Case reports/series will be considered only if they present unique content or illustrate a unique perspective.
Keywords: Stillbirth, stillbirth surveillance, Bereavement care, perinatal grief, Rainbow pregnancy
