Every day six babies will die in their mother’s womb and be stillborn – a little-known and tragic health issue. A huge amount of investment is needed in vital research to understand why such large numbers of babies are dying; particularly those that are born at or close to term with no known cause of death.
Since 2009, Stillbirth Foundation supporters have funded more than $1,000,000 in research studies. Every year, we continue to dedicate ourselves to raising as much money as we can for the purposes of funding the very best research studies – as determined by the rigorous guidelines set by our Scientific Assessment Committee.
The Stillbirth Foundation Australia is pleased to be able to support much-needed research into the causes of stillbirth. The Stillbirth Foundation works with researchers who are committed to ensuring that the stillbirth rate starts to decline in Australia.
