I will be honest and admit I have only skimmed through it but some interesting points were:
- women under 20 and over 40 years of age are at greater risk of losing babies
- maternal obesity (BMI>30) is a risk factor
- babies born to Black and Asian women have a higher death rate, as well as those women who are socially deprived
- incidence of deaths when the mothers are in labour have remained the same since 2000
- most of the deaths of babies born at home are homebirths that are not planned.
