As 2017 quickly comes to a close, I've been reviewing my goals for 2017 and many of the goals I set were for my volunteer work with families suffering the loss of an infant. In working with families during and after their loss, I've been able to identify specific needs that our community and local hospitals have and search for ways to fill those needs in order to help families heal. Stillbirth effects 1 in every 160 expectant families. 1 in 160. Those numbers are staggering.
