MBRRACE-UK Perinatal Mortality Surveillance

UK perinatal deaths for births from 1 January 2021 to 31 December 2021

State of the Nation Report


It is with grateful thanks that the MBRRACE-UK collaboration would like to acknowledge the contribution of the many healthcare professionals and staff from the health service and other organisations who were involved in the notification of perinatal deaths and the provision of data. Without the generous contribution of their time and expertise it would not have been possible to produce this report.

We would particularly like to thank all MBRRACE-UK reporters and other staff in NHS Trusts, Health Boards and Health and Social Care Trusts across the UK, and those from the Crown Dependencies, whose contribution made it possible to carry out this surveillance.
