The Safer Maternity Care action plan is part of the national ambition to halve rates of stillbirths, neonatal deaths, maternal deaths and brain injuries that occur during or shortly after birth, by 2030.

The plan sets out the measures that will be used to make NHS maternity services safer.

It is supported by a national package of measures and funding.
