Research and Advocacy

The Stillbirth Foundation Australia has collated the experiences of many parents. The Foundation has put together a range of online facts sheets and support resources. A range of topics are covered, such as "Is there a right way to grieve?", "Will our relationship change?", and "How can I help my other children cope?".
Support for wider families and friends, and for care providers, is also covered.

Other organisations and resources supporting parents and families following the loss of a baby:

Heartfelt is a volunteer organisation of professional photographers across Australia and New Zealand. Heartfelt photographers give the gift of photographic memories to families that have experienced stillbirths, premature births or have children with serious and terminal illnesses. You can request a photographer via the Heartfelt website. Visit the link below for more.

Possum Portraits is a registered Australian charity providing bereaved parents with a hand-drawn, keepsake portrait of their angel baby. Professional artists draw commemorative portraits of babies lost to late-term miscarriage, TFMR, stillbirth or neonatal death and make them available to loss parents for free. To apply, simply head to their website and fill out the application form. You will need to submit at least one reference photograph of your baby, on which the portrait drawing will be based. All Australian residents are eligible to apply.
