This joint meeting held by Each Baby Counts (EBC) and the National Maternity and Perinatal Audit (NMPA) will provide a unique opportunity to hear first-hand the findings of both programmes. The Each Baby Counts findings will feature findings and lessons that can be learned from the care of Each Baby Counts babies born in 2016 as well updated information relating to the quality of local reviews into the care of these babies. The event will also include an update from the NMPA and the results of the first ‘sprint’ audit on mothers admitted to intensive care.
Each Baby Counts launched in late 2014 and is the RCOG’s national quality improvement project with an aim to half the number of babies who die or are left with severe brain injury as a result of something going wrong during labour by 2020.
The National Maternity and Perinatal Audit (NMPA) has been commissioned by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP), funded by NHS England, the Scottish government and the Welsh Government. It is being delivered by the RCOG, in collaboration with the RCM, RCPCH and LSHTM.

March of dimes
The conference is supported by the March of Dimes Foundation, a nonprofit organisation that funds lifesaving research and programs and works to end premature birth, birth defects and infant mortality. It was founded by then-President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1938 to combat polio, and has since endeavoured to provide mothers, pregnant women and women of childbearing age with educational resources, as well as supplying information and support to families affected by prematurity, birth defects, or other infant health problems.
