Newsweek Stillbirth Article

There is well written article in Newsweek that has just been published: A Vast and Sudden Sadness. The writer, Claudia Kalb, contacted us a while back and we spoke at great length about the Certificate of Birth Resulting in Stillbirth Bill.

Unfortunately, this article focused on the "Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep" photography program -- an excellent program which gives parents lasting memories of their child through photographs -- but a lost opportunity to talk about the CBRS.

We are asking everyone to contact Claudia Kalb at Newsweek. (

We'd like you to Thank her for her article on Stillbirth and to ask if she would consider writing one on the Certificate of Birth Resulting in Stillbirth bill. There are still 25 states that do not offer this important document to parents. Which, much like the cherished photographs, are another way for parents to honor and remember their child.
