UK Stillbirth rate - Cambridge research contributes to evidence base

Research published online by the Lancet gives evidence of stillbirth rates in the UK being higher than in almost every other high-income country.
The UK had about 4,100 stillbirths in 2009 and, with a rate of 3.5 per 1,000 births, was ranked 33rd in a list of 193 countries - down from 26th in 1995.


Only France and Austria ranked lower among high-income nations.
