I am very sorry to hear of your friends loss, and offer my heartfelt apologies.
Unfortunetly, there are many things to take into consideration for causing an underdeveloped fetus and thus, an unhealthy birth. You must look into all areas such as genetic, environmental, or the worst: unknown factors. Medications can also play a vital role in this. Do you have any idea of anything directly connected to this possibiltlity of happening thus far?
The most common cause of miscarriage is fetal death due to genetic abnormalities that occur when the fetus is developing. Sixty percent of all miscarriages in early pregnancy are due to genetic defects.
In some cases a fertilised egg does not attach itself to the wall of the uterus, or attaches itself to the wrong place.
Bacterial infections in the uterus may also be responsible for some miscarriages. However, infections can also be present in women who also have successful pregnancies.
Abnormalities in the uterus can also cause miscarriage. Fibroid tumors in the uterus and other structural problems can stop a fetus from implanting properly.
Women's own immune system may also have a role in pregnancy loss. It is believed some women's immune systems actually attack the placenta, instead of allowing it to help grow the fetus.
Drugs to treat malaria, acne and cancer have been linked to a higher rate of miscarriage.
Other problems such as diabetes and thyroid disorders are also linked to miscarriage.
That could likely be a cause as well as so many other possible reasons. It is so hard to not know the exact reasoning, I am sure. Studies suggest that often a baby might stop growing in utero due to an abnormal chromosome factor as well. With this being an option; it could have started with a poor quality egg, poor quality sperm, during fertilization, or even during the early cell dividing.
