Revised guideline for investigating intrauterine fetal death (IUFD)

RCP has released an updated version of the clinical practice resource "Intrauterine Fetal Death & Stillbirth: Guidelines for Investigation", revised in September 2020.

The guideline presents care and investigative options for childbearing persons (and their relatives) who experience intrauterine fetal demise (IUFD) or stillbirth. Discussing options for investigating fetal demise is one of the most challenging conversations perinatal health professionals will initiate. Parents and families may need additional time to carefully consider their options, and follow-up discussion before final decisions can be made and consent given.
