On June 26, the Perinatal and Maternal Mortality Review Committee (PMMRC) will host its annual conference, Coming together to be better, and will launch its 12th Annual Report.

PMMRC annual conferences present national perinatal and maternal mortality and morbidity data and findings, and discuss learnings for improving the quality of care for mothers and babies. 

We hear from keynote speakers on neonatal deaths in this country over the past ten years, persistent inequities in perinatal and maternal outcomes for Māori, paediatric heart obstruction and, the power of combing data with whānau/family voices.
