The article focuses on the evidence-based perinatal care, which involves late-fetal mortality in the past. According to sources, modern evidence-based perinatal care depends on the ability of registration systems to record birth outcome precisely and reliably. It was stated that registering the stillborn made a difference when it was connected with investments in providing the population with educated, authorized and affordable midwives in Scandinavia and the Dutch province of Zeeland.
