This is the fifth MBRRACE-UK Perinatal Mortality Surveillance Report and provides information on extended perinatal deaths in the UK and Crown Dependencies arising from births during 2017. The aims of the MNI-CORP are to collect, analyse and report national surveillance data and conduct national confidential enquiries in order to stimulate and evaluate improvements in health care for mothers and babies.
The availability of five years of data from across the UK (a cohort of just under four million births) and the improving quality of the data submitted to MBRRACE-UK has allowed an exploration of:
time trends in stillbirth, neonatal, and extended perinatal mortality rates for the UK and each of the constituent countries;
time trends in stillbirth, neonatal, and extended perinatal mortality rates by gestational age;
improvements in data quality over time;
time trends in reported CODAC classification of cause of death;
time trends in the offer and consent for post-mortems for stillbirths and neonatal deaths.
