Today is International Baby Loss Day – a day particularly close to my heart after the loss of our precious Laura 6 and a half years ago. I would love you all to watch this wonderful presentation we put together earlier this year for our annual ball and remember all our precious angels in heaven.

In addition to raising funds for stillbirth research, the Stillbirth Foundation Australia also aims to increase public awareness about stillbirth. We have recently created this video which beautifully demonstrates the reality of stillbirth whilst highlighting the need for further funding and are thrilled to be able to now share this with you.

The Stillbirth Foundation Australia would like to thank all of the families and photographers that have kindly shared their photos with us in order to make this possible, as well as Emily Bird for helping us to create this wonderful video.

  1. Oh Leanne. I don’t know what to say… I’m just going to go and think and pray for a while and I’ll get back to you in a tick. Just didn’t want to leave your site without acknowledging that I saw and imagined and felt. Meredy xo.

  2. Thank you for taking the time to watch Meredith – I had a tear in my eye tonight as I fed little Indi and put her to bed thinking of all that I missed with Laura. Such a strange and bittersweet time as if Laura was still here beautiful Indiana may not be. I take comfort in knowing she is our angel in heaven watching over us and we very much feel that she is here with us in spirit – she is talked about regularly – interestingly Sienna talks about her as though she is here with us all the time which is actually quite lovely. xxxxx

  3. My heart goes out to you and the many who have lost a dear child.

    BTW, I LOVE the name Indiana and looking back, wish I had used it for my daughter, who’s now 27, since it’s the state of my birth!

  4. This work is so important Leanne & this video is wonderful. And why is it that as a Community, this subject is still almost taboo? Thank you for continuing to talk about this via your Blog & sharing your heartache. The lives of the little babes lost will not be in vain.
    Millie ^_^
