Parents entering a pregnancy after stillbirth face an increased risk of stillbirth, along with many other adverse outcomes. These parents often experience intense anxiety during subsequent pregnancies, which may also contribute to poor outcomes. Expectant parents who have previously had a stillborn baby are likely to benefit from extra medical care and emotional support, but there is currently little evidence to help clinicians provide the best care to these parents. In this study, we assessed the effects of different interventions or models of care prior to and during subsequent pregnancies following stillbirth on maternal, fetal, neonatal and family health outcomes, and health service utilisation. This study has been published in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews and can be accessed here .
