Change is here.
Every single day, 65 US families expect to come home snuggling their newborn baby, and instead walk out of the hospital with a never-worn onesie and an empty infant carrier.
Many of these deaths are otherwise healthy babies and occur in normal, uneventful, low-risk pregnancies. With better awareness and simple prevention strategies, a significant portion of these babies could be saved, especially those that occur in the 3rd trimester.
The #StillCounts National Awareness Campaign is here to change this.
Families deserve to know that stillbirth still happens, and they deserve to be empowered with the information and resources they need to lower their risks of stillbirth.
If you or someone you care about has lost a child to stillbirth, miscarriage, SIDS, or any other cause at any point during pregnancy or infancy, please join us in raising awareness. Together, we can end preventable stillbirth.

Your Baby #StillCounts
If a baby you love has died, we are so incredibly sorry. No family should have to suffer the life-shattering heartache that you have.
We are all babyloss families at PUSH, and we're determined to make sure other babies get the chance that our babies never did.
Not every stillbirth is preventable, but many are. Build a legacy for your child by helping us to launch the first ever Rainbow Clinics in the US and prove that we can empower expectant families and their providers with lifesaving tools and resources to end preventable stillbirth.
There are many ways you can honor a baby who has died. Here are just a few:
Pregnancy & Infant Loss
Each year across the US, tens of thousands of families are devastated by the death of their baby. Some are lost to miscarriage early in pregnancy, some die in the second half of pregnancy and are stillborn, others tragically perish sometime after birth due to SIDS or other causes. The one thing that unites these families is that their grief is devastating beyond words, and the immense value of their babies’ lives is very rarely acknowledged.
October has been designated as a month to combat the stigma that so often comes with pregnancy and infant loss, and break the silence surrounding these heartbreaking and often preventable deaths.
By sharing openly about pregnancy and infant loss - during Awareness Month and always - we can empower families to lower their risks, and ensure that every family who is forced to say goodbye to their beloved baby receives the support and understanding they deserve.
