The ICD code P95 is used to code Stillbirth
Stillbirth is often defined as fetal death after 20 weeks of gestation, but a fetus greater than any combination of 16, 20, 22, 24, or 28 weeks gestational age and 350g, 400g, 500g, or 1000g birth weight may be considered stillborn depending on local law. Once the fetus has died, the mother may or may not have contractions and undergo childbirth or in some cases, a Caesarean section. Most stillbirths occur in full-term pregnancies. The cause is often unknown.
Ultrasonography is often used to diagnose stillbirth or medical conditions that raise the risk of stillbirth.
