There are six stillborn babies a day in Australia.

One in 135 births will be a stillbirth yet the cause of stillbirth is not well understood.

Around 40 per cent of cases, the cause of the baby’s death will never be known.

For every baby that dies of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) in Australia, 35 are stillborn.

In 2012, there were 1832 babies who were stillborn.

Despite enormous technological and medical advances, the rate of stillborn babies has not declined in two decades.
