Parents Suffer in Silence from Stillborn Crisis


Every day in Australia, there are 6 stillborn births. Many parents suffer emotional trauma, unprepared for the cause of a death they had no idea existed.

Advocacy groups have called for a National Action Plan, with Federal funding directed towards research, consolidation of data, a better circulation of information and improving public education to reduce risk and stigma.

Meanwhile, parents can turn to support networks such as The Stillbirth Foundation and Red Nose.
