Each Baby Counts is the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (ROCG's) national quality improvement programme to reduce the number of babies who die or are left severely disabled as a result of incidents occurring during term labour.
In the UK, each year over 1000 babies die or are left with severe brain injury – not because they are born too soon or too small, or have a congenital abnormality, but because something goes wrong during labour. The RCOG does not accept that all of these are unavoidable tragedies, and with the Each Baby Counts project they are committed to reducing this unnecessary suffering and loss of life by 50% by 2020.
