Our beautiful son Beau was stillborn on ANZAC Day 2017. Stillbirth is an extremely traumatic experience that causes a lifetime of yearning for the baby you had, but never had, and yet will have forever.
The rate of stillbirth death has not reduced in 20 years. Stillbirth death is the highest rate of child mortality in Australia with 6 babies being stillborn every day. And yet many Australians are unaware of what stillbirth is, how it affects families and the rate of stillbirth deaths.
40% of Australian stillbirth cases have an unknown cause of death. Beau falls under this category. Not knowing why he died makes closure even harder and means we have nothing to screen for in future pregnancies.
We want to support the Stillbirth Foundation of Australia by spreading awareness and raising funds for further research to help prevent stillbirth deaths. The Stillbirth Foundation of Australia does not receive any Government funding and relies on the generous donations made by the affected families, their friends and colleagues.
Please consider making a donation and sharing this page on your social media. Anything you can do to help is deeply appreciated.
Thank you for your generosity & support!!
