How Each Baby Counts will achieve its aims
Currently, stillbirths, neonatal deaths and brain injuries occurring due to incidents in labour are investigated at a local level. The Each Baby Counts project team will, for the first time, bring together the results of these local investigations to understand the bigger picture and share the lessons learned.
From 2015, we began collecting and analysing data from all UK units to identify lessons learned to improve future care. We will then be able to make recommendations on how to improve practice at a national level.

Why Each Baby Counts matters
Stillbirth, death of a newborn baby or the birth of a baby with brain injuries are life-changing events that significantly affect women and their families. Each Baby Counts is collating stories from affected families to demonstrate the devastating impact of these events.
