Saving Babies Lives: Reducing Still Birth

Monday 11 Nov 2019

De Vere West One Conference Centre, London

Follow the conference on twitter #SavingBabiesLives #eachbabycounts

This conferences focuses on the important issue of Saving Babies Lives: Reducing Stillbirth, and implementing the March 2019 Version 2 of the Saving Babies Lives Care Bundle. The stillbirth rate in the UK is high relative to other similar European Countries, it has been demonstrated that the implementation of key interventions can lead to reductions in the stillbirth rate in line with the national ambition to reduce the number of stillbirths, neonatal deaths, maternal deaths and brain injuries that occur during or soon after birth by 50% by 2030 and by 20% by 2020. 

“Great care also means safe care, but sadly too many women are still suffering the unimaginable tragedy of losing a child. We are committed to saving 4,000 lives by 2025 by halving stillbirths, maternal and infant deaths and serious brain injuries in new-borns.”

Department of Health 

“15 babies die every day in the UK before, during or shortly after birth. The rates of stillbirths have fallen a little in recent years, after decades of stagnation. But the number of babies dying remains too high and must fall faster: the rate of reduction in the UK is up to three times slower than other European countries; neonatal deaths have even risen slightly in the last two years.”

Sands 2018

The Each Baby Counts Report released on 13 November 2018 shows that different care might have led to a different outcome in almost three quarters of stillbirths, neonatal deaths and severe brain injuries included in the review. There was an average of seven contributory factors per incident and this shows the complex relationship between clinical and non-clinical factors. In almost half (45%) of the affected babies, guidelines and best practice were not followed.
