What causes elevation in blood levels leading to still born child?

my niece recently delivered her daughter stillborn just 8 days from her due date. Everything was perfect and the baby was healthy until last wednesday when she went for her checkup and there was no heartbeat. the autopsy and placenta testing showed nothing, however her blood studies the doctor perfomed on the mother just before birth showed an elevation in her blood. Something to do with an R and the levels in her blood were too high. she is having to see a specialist to prevent it from happening again. Any ideas as to what this may be? My sister couldn't remember what it was called and I want to be able to find info. thanks

hi healthcare magic user
1) for evaluation of cause for still birth needs lots of blood work up.

2) they must have done CRP that is c reactive protein which can be high indicates risk of infections.

3)please get thrombophila profile done to know exact cause and treat accordingly.

4)also test for karyotype of baby and parents both if possible.
