In this short video, two couples talk about stillbirth. One mum says people never think it will happen to them. She talks about labouring and giving birth, knowing her child has not survived.

Help and support is available after stillbirth. For example, nurses offer a follow-up visit after a stillbirth to connect mothers and partners with local support groups.
