Saving Babies’ Lives Version 2: a care bundle to reduce perinatal mortality

Karen Thirsk

In 2016 NHS England released the Saving Babies’ Lives Care Bundle (SBLCB) as part of the national ambition to reduce the rates of stillbirth.

A new fifth element focuses on reducing preterm birth and improving outcomes when preterm birth is unavoidable to further decrease perinatal mortality.
