Many midwives «miss stillbirth risk signs»

A thousand babies die needlessly every year because hospitals neglect basic checks on pregnant women, research suggests.

Mothers-to-be face a “postcode lottery” on the safety of their babies because midwives in many areas lack crucial training in how to spot the warning signs of stillbirth, researchers say.

Professor Jason Gardosi, of the Perinatal Institute, said that avoidable baby deaths happened at the rate of “a classroom a week” because hospitals were not using tape measures and charts properly, despite guidance stretching back more than a decade.
