This study draws on the estimated stillbirth risk by week of gestation as derived from the national data. See - Epidemiology of Stillbirth in Australia. The principles of EBCD methodology will be used to develop The Safer Baby Bundle resources. A major area of focus is resources for the SBB timing of birth element (SBB Element 5) which is anticipated to include a clinical care pathway, materials to support womens informed decision-making and a clinician education program. Guided by the Australian EBCD Toolkit and building on consultation that has already occurred, the key steps in this process will be as follows:
1. recruitment of a group of clinicians (midwives and doctors) and parents (approximately 15- 20 in each group);
2. one-to-one interviews and focus groups to gather information about their experiences relevant to SBB elements.
3. sharing of the information gathered in a facilitated combined meeting to agree on key aspects of care with a focus on the SBB timing of birth element;
4. co-design meetings to develop and refine resources;
5. a celebration event on the achievements. Women who have recently birthed (within previous 6 months) and midwives and doctors at selected participating services across each of the three jurisdictions involved in the SBB implementation will be invited to participate.
Engagement with Indigenous and CALD women and their care providers will be overseen by the Stillbirth CREs Indigenous and CALD Advisory Groups.
