Abstract

On June 15th this year, MBRRACE published its report1 focusing on perinatal deaths in the UK in 2016. While disappointing that the rate of stillbirths in singletons remained static, the report described a significant fall in the rate of stillbirths and neonatal deaths in twin pregnancies. In fact, the stillbirth rate was almost halved from 11.07 (95% CI, 9.78 to 12.47) per 1,000 births in 2014 to 6.16 (95% CI, 5.20 to 7.24) in 2016 (Table 1, Figure 1). The neonatal mortality rate in twins also fell significantly from 7.81 (95% CI, 6.73 to 9.01) to 5.34 (95% CI, 4.47 to 6.36) per 1,000 live births (Table 1, Figure 2).
