Updated Saving Babies’ Lives sessions now available

Posted on: September 27th, 2023 by Louise Garrahan No Comments

The Saving Babies’ Lives programme has recently been reviewed with six updated sessions now available for maternity and neonatal staff.

The newly updated Detection and Surveillance of Fetal Growth Restriction (FGR) session aligns with element 2 of the recently published Saving Babies’ Lives Care Bundle Version 3. It provides an understanding of the core principles of the risks of stillbirth associated with FGR and the element’s suggested measures to reduce this by improving detection and management.

Reduced Fetal Movements RFM (element 3) session reflects the latest evidence-based research related to advice and monitoring of RFM which includes advice that antenatal assessments from mid-gestation routinely involve the ‘Ask, Listen and Inform’ approach.

Effective Fetal Monitoring During Labour has also been updated to align with the changes to element 4. It introduces the key principles of risk assessment at the start of labour to determine the best method of fetal monitoring in labour.

Prediction, Prevention and Perinatal Optimisation of Preterm Birth (element 5) encourages maternity and neonatal staff to draw upon the learning from the existing BAPM toolkits and the successful programmes being supported by the patient safety collaboratives across England.

Saving Babies’ Lives also features updated sessions on ultrasound and smoking advice for pregnant women.

Each session takes up to 30 minutes to complete and are aimed at maternity staff including midwives and obstetricians and neonatal staff.

This elearning has been developed in partnership with NHS England and NHS Improvement, the Office for Health Improvement and Disparities, the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, the Royal College of Midwives and the British Intrapartum Care Society.
