Day 288

Today I finalised my submission to the senate inquiry on stillbirth.

I hope my words add value to the conversation and help encourage our government to allocate funding to support parents after a stillborn child. I also hope our government can allocate funding to continue the research and communication efforts of our local charities such as The Stillbirth Foundation Australia, Still Aware and SANDS.

If you have a precious child that was stillborn I would encourage you to share your story with the committee by the 29th of June.

I will share my submission here, once I get approval from the committee that it can be published.

Thank you Hamish for giving me the strength to write this and speak up.
