Better education for mothers will top the agenda, at the first ever roundtable on stillbirth.
Stakeholders, including medical professionals, and politicians will meet in Canberra, to discuss how to bring down the tragedies.
Stillbirth Foundation of Australia chief executive Kate Lynch says there are some simple tips, which all pregnant mothers need to know.
“If they can settle to sleep on their side, they’ll reduce their risk of their baby being born still. If mothers detect a change in the movements of their baby, [they should] make contact with their health care professional – and of course, when pregnant, do go and get support to reduce smoking if you’re a smoker,” Ms Lynch says.
The Federal Government has announced $26 million to support parents who’ve experienced stillbirth or miscarriage.
