The purpose of this study is to understand the current organisational context for perinatal bereavement care and perinatal mortality review processes in Australian maternity care settings and to identify areas in which improvements may be needed. The ultimate aim of the study is to improve care and outcomes for parents whose baby is stillborn or dies soon after birth by building the capacity of clinicians and their organisations to provide high quality perinatal bereavement care.
