NHS baby death probes 'not good enough
There are too many poor quality investigations into babies who die or are severely brain damaged during labour, a review says. The warning by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists comes as it publishes its preliminary report into how problems during labour are investigated. More than 900 cases have been referred to the programme. Of the 204 investigations reviewed, 27% were found to be of poor quality. The review has also been looking at the number of cases where parents have been involved in the investigations - nearly three-quarters of the 599 reviewed did not involve them in any meaningful way. Ministers said the findings were "unacceptable". The final report is due in 2017. The inquiry, Each Baby Counts, has been set up to ensure lessons are learned when something goes wrong.

The aim is by 2020 to halve the number of babies who die or are left severely disabled. UK 2015, out of 800.000 births (after at least 37 weeks of pregnancy) In all cases, the babies had been healthy before labour began.

655 babies classified as having severe brain injuries

147 neonatal deaths (within seven days of birth)

119 stillbirths

Parents, the blame stops at UK RCOG - RCM - NICE and their avoidance to perform controlled foetal monitoring  & C- Sections. The lack of independent investigation.
