OBs & MFMs, Take the PUSH PAL Challenge!

Updated: Aug 19

Medical providers, you know better than anyone the devastation of stillbirth. You've seen the heartbreak firsthand. You've carried the grief and what-ifs home with you.

What you may not know is that research shows that at least 25% of stillbirths are preventable, including 47% at term. If we matched our best international peers, we could be preventing up to 75% of US stillbirths.


We have the tools to identify more at-risk babies. We know you know how much every single life matters.


Change is desperately needed, and we're only going to achieve it if parents, providers, and policymakers come together to make it a priority.


We know that YOU know every stillborn baby #StillCounts. Are you ready to prove it?


Take the PUSH PAL Challenge!


We know you agree: It's time to prioritize stillbirth...

  • ...Prevention

  • ...Awareness

  • ...Loss/Bereavement Care

Prove your support by donating $1,000+ towards our mission to #endpreventablestillbirth.


To thank you for your generosity and allyship, PUSH PALs will receive:

  • Sponsor Benefits at The Big PUSH to End Preventable Stillbirth nationwide awareness events on 10/15/22 (www.thebigpushmarch.org) including:

  • Logo, name & website link on Big PUSH website and acknowledgment on printed sponsor list at Big PUSH events

  • Logo in sponsor acknowledgment social media post

  • Free print copies of Stillbirth Awareness cards/posters, upon request

  • Free access to our online Pregnancy After Loss Provider Training for your entire practice. Upon completion of training, also receive:

  • Designation Seal

  • Inclusion on PUSH Website Recommended Provider Lists

  • Bragging rights (duh) - we'll give you social media/website graphics to help make sure your healthcare provider friends know who's really dedicated to saving babies' lives!
