1982). But the answer is uncertain so far as diabetic births were concerned (Kitzmiller 1986). Perinatal Death in Diabetes 29 In the past macrosomia was even found in “cases with excellent control of diabetes throughout pregnancy” (Lavietes et al. 1943; Gilbert and Dunlop 1949), and occurred later even in well controlled pregnancies (Knight 1983; Dandona et al. 1986; Berk et al. 1989; Hunter et al. 1993; Hare 1994; Silva et al. 2005), and is still not well understood (Kitzmiller 1986; Fenichel et al.
It should be remembered that not much was known of the causes of perinatal death even in the overall population. An early attempt at delineating them divided stillbirths and 1st week deaths into those of maternal, placental, and fetal origins, but found that the main one, fetal trauma, fit into none of them (Tingle 1926). Deaths in Baltimore, beside those attributed to syphilis, were largely due to toxemia with the others of unknown cause (Dippel 1934). Other contemporary reports were equally vague.
Thus today the widely accepted definition of stillbirth is intrauterine death after 20 weeks of pregnancy. Which in its turn led to stillbirth, like neonatal death, being subdivided, for the reason given below, into early and late, the former from 20 through 28 weeks and the latter after 28 weeks of gestation. These intervals, needing a foundation, were to be based on the method of dating gestational length from the first day of the last menstrual period before pregnancy onset; which is the practice of most clinicians and epidemiologists, and is convenient—but biologically incorrect.
