What is neonatal death?

Neonatal death is when a baby dies after birth in the first 28 days of life. The most common causes of neonatal death are premature birth (before 37 weeks of pregnancy), low birthweight (less than 5 pounds, 8 ounces) and birth defects. Your healthcare provider or a genetic counselor may be able to help you learn about why your baby died and if you may have the same problems in another pregnancy. Learn more at: marchofdimes.org
