FIMR, or the Fetal and Infant Mortality Review, is a national, evidence-based model proven to reduce stillbirth and infant deaths. It is a community‐driven, action‐based process to review all the circumstances surrounding an infant or fetal loss and to find solutions to problems the family may have experienced accessing services.
