The number of stillbirths has gone down in the US.
But, it is with a significant difference between black and white women, there is still work to be done..
A new Centers for Disease Control report shows stillbirths dropped about a percent and a half every year from 1990 to 2003.
Stillbirth rates are about twice as high for African American women compared to white women.
Doctors say there are several things that can contribute to still births including smoking during pregnancy, severe high blood pressure, diabetes and infections.
