This conferences focuses on the important issue of Saving Babies Lives: Reducing Stillbirth, and implementing Version 2 of the Saving Babies Lives Care Bundle and accelerating action to achieve 50% reductions in stillbirth by 2025. The conference will also reflect and focus on implementing the recommendations from the Final Ockenden Report published in March 2022. 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 2025. The conference will also update delegates on Saving Babies Lives during the Covid-19 Pandemic. 

“Sufficient protected time must be allocated for training across all maternity specialisms including routine refresher courses as well as multidisciplinary team training, particularly in emergency drills.”

Ockenden Report: Independent Review of maternity services at The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust 30th March 2022

“In 2020, 1 in every 225 pregnancies ended in stillbirth. 2,638 babies were stillborn in 2020 in the UK. The stillbirth rate in England and Wales is 3.8 stillbirths per 1,000 total births. Approximately 7 babies were stillborn every day Croatia, Poland and Czech Republic all have better stillbirth rates than UK.”

Tommy’s 2022

“All hospitals should carry out local reviews on every death to understand what happened, why the death occurred and how they can improve care to prevent similar deaths in the future”
