The conference will focus on the updated elements of the Saving Babies Lives Care Bundle with an extended focus on the new Element 6 covering the management of pre-existing diabetes in pregnancy for women with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes who are known to be 4-5 times at risk of losing their baby.
There will be a renewed focus on reduced fetal movement and delegates will be updated on practical advice in the implementation of existing elements 1-5 and monitoring adherence in practice.

Saving Babies’ Lives Version Three, NHS England 1st June 2023
As Saving Babies’ Lives Care Bundle (SBLCBv3) enters its third edition and its 7th year, it continues to innovate and drive forward quality improvement in key areas of maternity care. We welcome the addition of an element covering diabetes in pregnancy and the continued development of the other successful five elements... The Saving Babies’ Lives Care Bundle is part of a number of initiatives to improve maternity care and safety. However, there are areas that we urgently need to address if we are to ensure a continued reduction in perinatal mortality for all women and babies.
