Lion park murder-effects on the baby....

I am asking a question on behalf of my sister whos boyfriend got murdered last weekend at the lion park. she is 18 weeks pregnant and obviously devasted - she is hardly eating and sleeping. She doesnt want to go to the doc for a check up as she says she is fine....I just would like to know what the effects, if any, there could be for the baby in such a stressful situation ....can stress harm the unborn baby?!?! Is there anything we can do to prevent harm etc

Unfortunately, stress is quite hard to measure, so it isn't really known what effects this may have on a pregnancy.
