Reducing mortality and morbidity in maternity and neonatal services is a priority for this Government.
The national ambition is to halve the 2010 rates of stillbirths, neonatal and maternal deaths and brain injuries in babies occurring during or soon after birth by 2025.
The National Health Service website has a dedicated page on neonatal herpes, which sets out how neonatal herpes can be prevented.
