This study aims to describe trends in perinatal death and causes of in regional Victoria. It will identify changing demographic and obstetric interventions, and will assess the impact of the introduction of regional M and M meeting to reduce perinatal mortality in regional Victoria.

Specifically, the project aims to:

Determine rates of perinatal mortality and morbidity in regional Victorian health services between 2000 and 2019.
Determine changes in demographics, transfers and obstetric interventions in regional Victorian health services between 2000 and 2018
Compare 1 and 2 between regional services engaged in the M and M process to those who did not participate and with metropolitan health services over the study period.
To quantify if the introduction of regional M and M have impacted perinatal mortality in Victorian regional services and drivers of any change.
