Fetal death

Definition of Fetal death

The death of a child not yet born. Death in utero of a fetus weighing 500 grams or more. This weight corresponds roughly to a fetus of twenty weeks or more (gestational age), i.e. a viable fetus.

Death is defined in the following context: after expulsion, the fetus does not breathe or show any other evidence of life, such as the beating of the heart, pulsation of the umbilical cord, or definite movement of voluntary muscles.
