  • Brief

  • Background

    When a baby dies the families are usually cared for, at some stage in their pregnancy or birth journey, by midwives, however, midwives may not be adequately prepared to care for them.

  • Key takeaways

    There is room to improve and standardise appropriate stillbirth curriculum nationally. It is imperative that midwives are able to provide sensitive and knowledgeable care to all women and their families.
