A: This tragic death (also called fetal demise) was likely preventable. The standard of care doctors must adhere to when presented with a pregnant woman who has suffered a trauma or fall is to at least monitor them for a minimum of 4 hours. In addition, when an expectant mother reports decreased fetal movement, doctors should perform tests such as ultrasound or sonogram, fetal monitoring or blood tests to check on fetal progress.
