“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 30 December 2018

“The first version of the Saving Babies’ Lives Care Bundle appears to have contributed to the stillbirth rate in England falling to a historical low.” NHS England 15 March 2019

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.

“The success of the Saving Babies’ Lives Care Bundle version 2 ultimately rests on its implementation. It was heartening to see so many maternity services enthusiastically implement version one with some achieving dramatic reductions in mortality. The NHS Long Term Plan reiterates the NHS’s commitment to a 50% reduction in stillbirth, maternal mortality, neonatal mortality and serious brain injury and a reduction in preterm birth rate, from 8% to 6%, by 2025.” Matthew Jolly National Clinical Director for Maternity and Women’s Health, NHS England, March 2019

“The NHS Long Term Plan (LTP) reiterates the NHS’s commitment to a 50% reduction in stillbirth, maternal mortality, neonatal mortality and serious brain injury and a reduction in preterm birth rate, from 8% to 6%, by 2025. There is a commitment to fully implement this second version of the care bundle by 30th March 2020.” Saving Babies’ Lives Version Two, NHS England 15 March 2019

“This second version of the Saving Babies’ Lives Care Bundle heralds a significant commitment to meet the national ambition set by the Secretary of State, recently reiterated in the NHS long-term plan, to achieve a 50% reduction in the rate of pre-term and stillbirths in the UK by 2025.” Professor Lesley Regan President, Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, 13 March 2019
