New action to cut stillbirths

NHS England publishes new guidance that aims to reduce stillbirths in England.

The new guidance – called Saving Babies’ Lives Care Bundle – is part of a drive to halve the rate of stillbirths from 4.7 per thousand to 2.3 per thousand by 2030, potentially avoiding the tragedy of stillbirth for more than 1500 families every year.
While the majority of women receive high quality care, there is around a 25 per cent variation in stillbirth rates across England.

The guidance addresses this variation by bringing together four key elements of care based on best available evidence and practice in order to help reduce stillbirth rates.
