In Australia there are six stillborn babies every day - a heartbreaking statistic that hasn't changed in 20 years.To highlight the impact on the families who leave hospital without their baby, Stillbirth Foundation Australia has released a powerful new video which shares the stories of three couples coping with their grief and loss.

"This video is a tragic, but vital display of what it means to have a stillbirth," said Victoria Bowring, the Foundation's General Manager. "Only by drawing attention to this public health crisis, can we make a difference. I challenge anyone to look at this and then argue we don't need more funding into stillbirth research, or more education for parents about what can be done to reduce your chances of stillbirth."
