About Each Baby Counts

Each Baby Counts programme launched in late 2014 and is the RCOG’s national quality improvement project with an aim by 2025 to halve the number of babies who die or are left with severe brain injury as a result of something going wrong during labour.

About Each Baby Counts Learn and Support

Each Baby Counts Learn and Support aims to systematically apply the learning from numerous maternity safety reports to improve the quality and safety of care in England.

The Department of Health funded the RCOG and the RCM (Safer Maternity Care; The National Maternity Safety Strategy - Progress and Next Steps, Department of Health 2017) to establish the Each Baby Counts Learn and Support programme. The programme will build the capacity of 16 NHS maternity professionals in clinical leadership, safety thinking and quality improvement in order to co-produce interventions to improve escalation of clinical care for women and babies.
