Earlier in hearings, the #SenateInquiryStillbirth heard that rural and regional areas of Australia have lost 40% of their maternity services.

The #SenateStillbirthInquiry is back on for the afternoon session. First up is @MCN_Advocates - very startling statistics about the significant difference in pregnancy outcomes - that is, a healthy, alive baby or not - between rural & regional areas and urban centres.
Absolutely fascinating presentation at #SenateInquiryStillbirth from Dr Dianne Payton, from Royal College of Pathologists, about perinatal pathology and autopsies/investigations of stillbirth
In short, Aus doesn’t value perinatal pathology, we don’t fund it, it is often at the bottom of the priority list, we don’t train enough people to do it, and we have very low rates of autopsy for #stillbirth - and yet it is so crucial to understanding causes & prevention.
