Experiencing stillbirth is devastating and leaves parents searching for causes. Autopsy is the gold standard for investigation, but deciding to consent to this procedure is very difficult for parents. Decision support in the form of clear, consistent, and parent‐centered information is vital to shared decision-making and to reducing the likelihood of later regret.
This study aimed to understand the factors that affect mothers decisions about having an autopsy for their stillborn baby.
