[Comment] Stillbirths count, but it is now time to count them all

In 2015, 2·6 million stillbirths were estimated globally, more than 7100 deaths a day, with most occurring in developing countries.1 These figures are substantial, yet they are an underestimation of the full extent of this loss because stillbirths at less than 28 weeks of pregnancy are not included in these numbers.2 If the 22-week threshold was applied, the numbers have been estimated to be 40% higher.2
