Comment
If the baby was a stillbirth, the birthweight must be >=400 grams or the gestation at least 20 weeks to be within the scope of the collection. If a stillbirth was less than 20 weeks gestation and less than 400 grams, then the baby is not in scope for the perinatal database. All livebirths are within scope, regardless of weight or gestation.
