This is the tenth annual report on mothers and babies in NSW. The report draws information from a variety of sources including: the NSW Midwives Data Collection (MDC), the NSW Birth Defects Register (BDR), the Neonatal Intensive Care Units’ Data Collection (NICUS), and the Neonatal Intensive Care Units’ Follow-up Data Collection. Information on causes of maternal deaths in NSW was obtained through the work of the NSW Maternal and Perinatal Committee. From 1 January 2006, confidential reviews of perinatal deaths among live born babies and stillbirths of at least 20 weeks gestation or 400 grams birth weight are also carried out by the Committee.
