Six babies are delivered stillborn every day in Australia.
And the loss of every single one of those precious children is keenly felt by their mothers, fathers and family.
These parents who were planning on joyously welcoming a new baby into the world, instead face overwhelming, shocking and confronting grief.
Today is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Day, and in honour of all the families who have ever experienced the devastation of a stillbirth, Mamamia brings you this ABC interview with our Contributing Editor Rebecca Sparrow.
Bec’s beautiful daughter Georgia Grace was stillborn and she spoke to ABC’s Rebecca Levingston, as well as the founder of the Stillbirth Foundation Australia Emma McLeod, about her family’s loss.
You can listen to the beautiful interview below.
Please share to let other women know how common this is – and that it’s okay to feel lost.
