While the UK remains one of the safest places to give birth,serious incidents do occur and can result in stillbirths, neonatal deaths and brain injuries. The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists is committed to improving this situation and in 2014 launched a dedicated programme of work, Each Baby Counts, to address this important issue.
The report identifies common issues, and makes recommendations on how to improve care, in three areas: fetal monitoring, human factors and neonatal care. It also includes suggestions for implementation and links to resources to help translate findings into practical improvements to care.
