Thanks for writing to us.
Sudden fetal death in second trimester can be due to a fetal malformation, uterine infections, chromosomal defects, hormonal deficiency or an unexplained cause. It is not likely to hapopen because of something done by you. Please do not worry.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
