Reducing the risk of stillbirth – resources

In Scotland, 4 babies a week are stillborn. Sometimes we don’t know the cause but we do know there are ways to reduce the risk. Here you can download leaflets and posters to spread the word about ways to reduce the risk.

Supporting you after a stillbirth

Stillbirth is one of the most devastating experiences any family can go through and it can take a long time to adjust to life after the death of a baby. However, you’re not alone and there are a wide range of support groups and health professionals who can help and support you during this very difficult time.

If you’ve experienced stillbirth, find out more about the help and support available to you. You can also visit Ready Steady Baby for more information.
