In Australia, 6 babies are born still every day. The Safer Baby initiative aims to help women understand the things they can do to reduce their risk of stillbirth.
This initiative is being led by the NHMRC Centre of Research Excellence in Stillbirth (Stillbirth CRE) in partnership with health departments across Australia.
Pregnant women have a higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19 and should be routinely offered vaccination at any stage of pregnancy.Pregnancy and COVID-19
The Safer Baby website provides information about having a safe and healthy pregnancy, and
reducing the chance of stillbirth. The information has been developed and reviewed by midwives,
doctors, parents and stillbirth researchers.
Our vision is to reduce the devastating impact of stillbirth for women, families and the wider community through improving care to reduce the number of stillborn babies and to reduce the impact of this loss.
The Stillbirth CRE is largest government funded collaborative research group, dedicated to the generation of knew knowledge and implementation of best clinical practice in prevention and care after stillbirth in Australia.Learn more about us
