What happens after diagnosing a cross fetus?

Last Update: 01/20/2022

It is possible to spontaneously expel the baby in preterm labor 2 to 3 weeks after fetal death. However, it is advisable to induce labor in order to avoid possible complications for the mother, such as hemorrhage or infection.

In addition, retaining a stillborn fetus after diagnosis may lead to further emotional problems for the parents.
