The Stillbirth CRE is pleased to provide a suite of approved stillbirth prevention and bereavement care resources. These evidence-based resources have been collaboratively designed for maternity healthcare professionals. The Stillbirth CRE has partnered with leading professional colleges and research institutions across Australia to develop these resources.

Safer Baby Bundle

For women to reduce their risk of stillbirth, the Safer Baby Bundle resources including flyers, posters, Clinical Practice Guidelines, Position Statements and Care Pathways are available at Learn.

The Stillbirth CRE has led the development of the Safer Baby Bundle resources to address the priority evidence practice gaps in stillbirth prevention for implementation across maternity services. This work has been done in partnership with health departments across Australia and key stillbirth advocacy organisations.

Stronger Bubba Born (First Nations)

Stronger Bubba Born resources for First Nations women and their families

For First Nations women and their families to reduce the risk of Sorry Business Baby (stillbirth), the new Stronger Bubba Born resources include flyers and videos that are available at the Stronger Bubba Born website.

These resources were developed by the Stillbirth CRE Indigenous research team with the guidance of the Indigenous Advisory Group. Delivery partner Curtin University supported the extensive consultation and co-design process. The National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (NACCHO) and the Waminda South Coast Women’s Health and Wellbeing Aboriginal Corporation are also collaborators with the CRE on their Indigenous work.

Growing a Healthy Baby (migrant and refugee)

To help the migrant and refugee women with the highest rates of stillbirth - Arabic, Dari, Dinka and Karen-speaking communities now have access to important tailored information in the form of a written booklet, summary video and self-paced digital booklet with audio.

These resources are now available at the Growing a Healthy Baby website. A network of community groups and health educators from the Multicultural Centre for Women’s Health (MCWH) and the Stronger Futures CRE at the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute (MCRI) worked with the Stillbirth CRE to develop these in-language resources.

Best practice care around loss

The Stillbirth CRE and PSANZ have recently updated the Care Around Stillbirth and Neonatal Death (CASaND) Clinical Practice Guideline. This edition of the guideline is available for all healthcare professionals who care for parents and families in Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand.
