We gained a great piece of coverage in The Times online (January 25th 2013). Written by its Health Correspondent Chris Smyth and entitled "Hundreds of babies die needlessly, study finds", the piece reported on a study done by the West Midlands Perinatal Institute and published in the British Medical Journal. It highlighted what is called the NHS’s failure to spot the main warning sign of stillbirth – fetal growth restriction - and our research and prevention advisor, Charlotte Bevan was quoted in the article as follows:
Charlotte Bevan, research and prevention advisor at Sands, the stillbirth and neonatal death charity, said that parents were "devastated and bewildered" when they found out only after a baby’s death that it was not growing properly. "We know when a baby near term is spotted as being at risk and is delivered in time, a life can be saved, and yet routine antenatal care continues to fail too many families," she added.
