GAPPS produces stillbirth video and FB campaign: Born in Silence
20 FEBRUARY 2013 - The Alliance to Prevent Prematurity and Stillbirth (GAPPS) has produced a video, Born in Silence, telling the story of stillbirth from the parents' perspective. The five-minute video tells the story of a stillbirth, and the impact that each parent feels when a child dies before birth.
Stillbirth is a difficult topic. People often don't know what to say when a friend or family member has a stillbirth. Health care workers may not be trained in caring for those parents. The hope is that this video will begin to break the silence around stillbirth.
Please share this video via your website, Facebook page or other social media tool. GAPPS is also inviting everyone who views the video to join in the discussion by posting a photo to the GAPPS Facebook page.
