Maternity and Neonatal Safety Program

The program will work in partnership with clinicians, consumers, LHD's, Ministry of Health, the Agency for Clinical Innovation and HETI to strengthen and align safety and quality functions and activities associated with Maternity and Neonatal care
The first two statewide improvement projects to support women, their families and clinicians are the Perinatal safety education and NSW Safer Baby Bundle.

Perinatal safety education is designed to improve outcomes for mothers and babies.
Safer Baby Bundle
In NSW for every 1000 babies born, six will be stillborn, affecting around twelve families each week.
