Baby Loss Awareness

16 October 2017

During the month of October, RANZCOG acknowledges families worldwide who pause to remember their lost infants and pregnancies.

The number of stillbirth and perinatal deaths is still relatively high and in many cases unexplainable.

Ensuring that supports are available for mothers and families who experience stillbirth is an important part of providing good maternity care. Sands Australia has a dedicated National Support Line that provides a safe place for women to talk about infant and pregnancy loss.

The Fetal Surveillance Education Program (FSEP) is a RANZCOG program that aims to build the capacity of health professionals to reduce the frequency of baby loss and improve perinatal outcomes.
