Channel 4 News can reveal that just weeks before the stillbirth of one baby, which has now been investigated, the Care Quality Commission, found that Mid and South Essex NHS Trust did not always have enough staff to keep women safe - while staff did not identify and escalate safety concerns appropriately.
