The Consultative Council on Obstetric and Paediatric Mortality and Morbidity (CCOPMM) produces a number of reports for the health sector on obstetric and paediatric mortality and morbidity.

The Council makes recommendations to help health services and medical practitioners improve clinical practice and systems of care, using its annual Victoria's mothers, babies and children report, the Victorian perinatal services performance indicators report, and the Congenital anomalies in Victoria report.

Victoria's mothers, babies and children reports

Each year CCOPMM produces an annual report on Victoria’s mothers and babies: Victoria’s maternal, perinatal, child and adolescent mortality.

Victoria’s Mothers, Babies and Children presents key findings and recommendations arising from the review of births and deaths.

The report contains comprehensive data on all maternal, perinatal and paediatric mortality and morbidity. The report is a useful tool for obstetricians, paediatricians, midwives and researchers in monitoring the care and outcomes for mothers and their babies along with infants, children and adolescents.

Annual reports

Congenital anomalies in Victoria report

Produced by CCOPMM, the Congenital anomalies in Victoria, data report details the prevalence of congenital anomalies in children before birth and up to six years of age. Selected major congenital anomalies of the gastrointestinal system and chromosomal anomalies are reported in more detail.

Victorian perinatal services performance indicators reports

This report, prepared by Safer Care Victoria and the Maternal and Newborn Clinical Network INSIGHT Committee, presents and discusses data from Victorian maternity services on 25 performance indicators across 13 key performance areas. By transparently reporting this data, we can paint a picture of the care provided to pregnant women and their babies – from antenatal and intrapartum (labour and birth) to postnatal care.
