Twelfth Annual Report of the Perinatal and Maternal Mortality Review Committee

18 Nov 2021

The twelfth annual report of the Perinatal and Maternal Mortality Review Committee (PMMRC) has a new format from previous reports. It addresses neonatal mortality and neonatal encephalopathy in depth. The perinatal mortality section includes a slightly reduced selection of tables and figures compared to previous years. Maternal mortality includes a core selection of tables and figures only. Both of these sections include limited commentary that aims to address any new data or issues of particular importance in the current year. The PMMRC plans to analyse and report maternal mortality in detail every three years. Specific topics will be chosen each year for in-depth analysis and commentary.
