Why we developed the Safer Baby Bundle, which aims to reduce stillbirth rates by 20% by 2023.
Over 2,200 babies are stillborn each year in Australia.
6 babies day in Australia are stillborn, which is higher than the national road toll.
The rate of stillbirth in Australia is higher than other high-income countries.
In many cases stillbirth is preventable and research shows 20-30% of stillbirths could be avoided with better care.
