"At least 2 million babies are stillborn every year, but half could be prevented if mothers had better medical care, according to researchers. While most stillbirths happen in the developing world, the rates in countries including the United States, Britain, and France have not dropped as expected. ... Better obstetric care and treating conditions like syphilis, high blood pressure, and diabetes in mothers could save more than 1 million infants every year, specialists say." (04/14/11)
