Saving babies’ lives ‘care bundle’ for reducing stillbirth

NHS England has published Saving Babies’ Lives - a care bundle to support providers, commissioners and professionals to take action to reduce stillbirths.

Evidence shows that more must be done to tackle stillbirth in England where rates are higher than other comparable countries and there is unwarranted variation between communities. NHS England has also published a patient information leaflet about the importance of recognising and investigating episodes of reduced fetal movements. This will be distributed by hospital trusts and other patient facing organisations to expectant parents.
