Research and News

The Stillbirth CRE works with many parents and parent organisations as partners in our research projects. We know how important it is to hear the voices of families who have have experienced stillbirth or the death of their newborn baby to help build knowledge and evidence about how to reduce the risks of stillbirth for others and to improve the quality of care for those affected.

We involve parents with lived experience in setting our research agenda, in advocating for change, and in helping educate and build awareness of stillbirth across the whole community.

You can make a difference

We are currently recruiting parents who have been impacted by stillbirth or newborn loss for a number of research studies. Your participation can help make a difference for families in Australia and across the globe.

  • COCOON Global Research: a global research study that seeks to understand the challenges and concerns of parents who are pregnant, given birth, or experienced stillbirth or newborn loss during the COVID-19 pandemic. 
  • Living with Loss: a research study to evaluate a new online program designed to support parents following the death of their baby. Living with Loss has been co-designed and developed by a team of parents and healthcare professionals. The program will provide a support option for parents and focuses on sharing evidence-based coping skills and strategies that may be helpful in understanding and navigating your way through grief now and over the long term.
  • Project Engage Study: this study connects bereaved families with the research process. Currently, Project Engage is in the development stage of co-creating a guide, which aims to demystify the research process for bereaved parents and families.
