A huge thank you to everyone who emailed their MP during Baby Loss Awareness Week, we are delighted that the additional confidential enquiry we were asking for will go ahead! A really important step in reducing inequalities and saving babies lives.
Crucially, this enquiry into Asian and Asian British baby deaths will run and report at the same time as an enquiry into Black and Black British baby deaths. This is an opportunity to make real headway in ensuring that all lessons are learnt, and preventable deaths avoided. Potentially saving hundreds of lives every year - had stillbirth and neonatal death rates for Black and Asian babies been the same as for White babies, 432 fewer babies would have died in 2019 in England and Wales.

Baby deaths can and must be reduced - help to make this a reality - one death is one too many.
