baby-mom-100A new study has found that women who experienced a previous child death were more likely to suffer an infant death or deliver a premature or low-birth-weight infant in a later pregnancy. George Mason University researcher Panagiota Kitsantas has released the study published in the International Journal of Medicine.  The study included approximately 10,000 mothers that had experienced at least one previous child death.
