Predict to Prevent

World Prematurity Day 2017

Training in Predictive Methods Key to Reducing Premature Birth & Stillbirth


1 in 13 babies born in the UK will be born prematurely (before 37 weeks of gestation).

Babies surviving premature birth has increased; however, the more premature the baby, the more likely there will be ongoing health complications. A piece of research by Queen Mary University of London revealed that babies born between 22 and 26 weeks of pregnancy had ongoing continued respiratory problems, brain damage, and eye disease of prematurity (retinopathy).

Baby Lifeline Training’s aim is to promote safety and improve outcomes for mums and babies in the UK. Our expert-led ‘Predict to Prevent’ courses focus on preterm birth, stillbirth, and fetal growth restriction. Predictive methods need to be learnt to prevent future deaths from occurring, and we teach an evidence-based clinical overview of care of babies at risk of preterm birth, stillbirth, and fetal growth restriction.

Our recent addition to the ‘Predict to Prevent’ suite of courses provides hands-on ultrasound instruction and training relevant to the care of women at risk of preterm birth, growth restriction, and stillbirth.

The feedback from the courses has been consistently excellent:
