Pre-birth risk assessment and conference

Pre-birth practice guidance

The pre-birth risk assessment should be followed when considering any concerns or risks relating to unborn children. A pre-birth assessment is a proactive means of analysing the potential risk to a newborn baby when there are concerns about a pregnant woman and where appropriate, her partner and immediate family.

Pre-birth conference

A pre-birth conference must be held under these procedures where there is concern that an unborn child will not receive adequate care after birth.
