Show your support from WHEREVER you are! It's easy!!


Just take a photo or video, and share to your favorite social media platforms with #bigpush2022! Be sure to tag @pushpregnancy so we can share to the big screen in DC! (Look for yourself on the YouTube Livestream/Recording! Link coming soon!)


Creativity welcome, but numbers are more important! The *ONLY* requirement is to use #bigpush2022 - we're tallying the posts to show our medical and gov't leaders that preventable stillbirth is a national crisis and that every stillborn baby #StillCounts!


Some optional ideas for your post:

  • Push an empty stroller or carry an empty infant carrier

  • Hold a photo or other memento (teddy bear, blanket, hat, onesie, etc.) of a stillborn baby you love

  • Create a sign (or use our handy printables!) to share who (or what!) you're pushing for (birth equity, all babies born still, GBS babies, etc.!)

  • Tag your friends and family, and ask them to post in honor of your baby, too!

  • Highlight an appalling stillbirth fact - lots of shareable graphics here!

  • Other hashtags: #UnitedWePush #EndPreventableStillbirth [Your Baby's Name] #StillCounts

Every stillborn baby deserves to be acknowledged, because every single child #StillCounts. Help us make our babies' voices heard!
