The UK is amongst the worst countries for stillbirth in Western Europe, with 4,000 babies dying before they are born every year, according to a pregnancy charity.
MAMA Academy is urging midwives and other healthcare staff to sign up to its Growth Assessment Protocol (GAP), which it says could save the lives of 1000 babies every year.
GAP would encourage all maternity wards to monitor the size of the foetus, as reduction in growth rate in the womb is the main indicator a baby is at risk of stillbirth.
Around 40% of stillbirths are related to fetal growth restriction, which is usually caused by the placenta failing to function properly.
