As some of you may know if you have visited before our first daughter Laura was stillborn 7 and a half years ago. Through the wonderful support network the hospital offered me I was fortunate enough to meet some wonderful girls – together we had a vision to create a charity that was there for the purpose of raising money for research to prevent this from happening to others – there are lots of wonderful charities that offer support to bereaved families so we wanted to focus our efforts on funding research.
5 Years ago we launched the Stillbirth Foundation Australia and I am so proud to report that we are growing bigger and stronger every day – we are now approaching our 5th Birthday and it is time to celebrate with a Birthday Party (and you know how I love a party!).
If you are in Sydney or have friends in Sydney that may be interested in supporting this wonderful charity I would love for you to forward on the details. Please visit the website www.stillbirthfoundation.org.au for more information. Also if you are interested in donating any goods or services as part of our silent auction items please email me.
Here are the current stillbirth statistics that you may find interesting.
