Advocacy is using our collective voice tpositively impact the stillbirth community. 

In addition to funding research and promoting stillbirth education, the Stillbirth Foundation has played an important role in advocating for a range of stillbirth policies to make a difference to the lives of bereaved parents and expecting families.  

Advocacy matters because we are shining a light on stillbirth with politicians in Canberra and in state jurisdictions – whether we are measuring the economic impact of stillbirthraising the profile of parent voices to inform the Senate Select Committee on Stillbirth Research and Education, or driving parental leave and bereavement payment equality – these issues are important to validate and recognise parents of stillborn babies first and foremost as parents. It helps reduce the stigma of stillbirth and supports bereaved parents as they move through their journey of grief.
