Each Baby Counts 2015 | The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists.
In the UK, each year over 1000 babies die or are left with severe brain injury because something goes wrong during labour.
Each Baby Counts is the RCOG’s national quality improvement programme to reduce the number of babies who die or are left severely disabled as a result of such incidents occurring during term labour.
The report presents key findings and recommendations based on the analysis of complete data relating to term stillbirths, neonatal deaths and babies with brain injuries born during 2015, the first full year of the programme.
