The 'Safer Baby Bundle' launches in Canberra
In an exciting step forward for stillbirth prevention in Australia, some of the country's leading organisations in stillbirth research and awareness recently launched the 'Safer Baby Bundle' at Parliament House in Canberra.
This latest research program is being led by the Stillbirth CRE, and will work to improve the partnership between parents, care providers, researchers and plicy makers to help aid in preventable stillbirth measures.
Still Aware is proud to be a philanthropic partner, together with the Stillbirth Foundation Australia, for this research program. As a community organisation, for the community, we understand how important it is to test programs like the Safer Baby Bundle so we can better improve our level of care for expectant families and their babies.
The project is now being trialled across NSW, Victoria and Queensland where it will reach over 175,000 Australian families a year. We know that programs like this ARE effective at reducing stillbirth - we have seen it happen in Scotland where stillbirth rates were reduced by 20%!
This is just one of the important tools that Australia needs to see in our care system, to create safer pregnancies for all Australian families.
