A pregnancy loss is still a birthday.
The mission of the stillbirthday global network is to validate a pregnancy loss as the birth, and death, that it is, and to fill the chasm between the moment darkness falls and when resources are discovered. We do this in part through free online materials including printable birth plans, and through our comprehensive doula training, preparing doulas to support families in person prior to, during, and after birth in any outcome and in any trimester. We aim to come alongside families from the very beginning of their parenting journey, whether through rearing or grieving, and provide support for their journey
Heartfelt is a volunteer organization of professional photographers from all over Australia dedicated to giving the gift of photographic memories to families which have experienced stillbirths, premature births, or have children with serious and terminal illnesses.
Heartfelt is dedicated to providing this gift in a caring and compassionate manner.
All services are free of charge.
