Abstract

Two to 6 million pregnancies were estimated to have ended in stillbirth in 2015. The aim of the AFFIRM study was to test the hypothesis that introduction of a reduced fetal movement care package for pregnant women and clinicians that increased women's awareness of the need for prompt reporting of RFM and that standardized management, including timely delivery, would alter the incidence of stillbirth.
