Weekend of Oct 15th 2022
Picture it: 23,000 empty strollers, parading past the steps of Congress – one for every child lost in the past year.
Ready for change? Let’s demand it! Invite all your family, friends, and individuals or organizations interested in lowering the rate of stillbirth.
Change is here.
Every single day, 65 US families expect to come home snuggling their newborn baby, and instead walk out of the hospital with a never-worn onesieand an empty infant carrier.
Many of these deaths are otherwise healthy babies and occur in normal, uneventful, low-risk pregnancies. With better awareness and simple prevention strategies, a significant portion of these babies could be saved, especially those that occur in the 3rd trimester.
The #StillCounts National Awareness Campaign is here to change this.
Families deserve to know that stillbirth still happens, and they deserve to be empowered with the information and resources they need to lower their risks of stillbirth.
If you or someone you care about has lost a child to stillbirth, miscarriage, SIDS, or any other cause at any point during pregnancy or infancy, please join us in raising awareness. Together, we can end preventable stillbirth.
