The term "stillborn" refers to a fetus that has died at or after 20 or 28 weeks of pregnancy, depending on the source, and has not demonstrated any signs of life after being born. The term is derived from the combination of "still" (adj.), which means dead in a euphemistic sense, and "born". The distinction between stillborn and other types of early pregnancy losses is important, as stillborn is specific to the death of a fetus after a certain point in pregnancy, whereas miscarriage refers to an early pregnancy loss. Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), on the other hand, occurs when a baby dies a short time after being born alive, which is different from stillborn.
