Star Legacy Foundation is a community of health professionals, families, researchers, policy makers, and advocates dedicated to healthy pregnancy outcomes and stillbirth prevention. We provide education, support research, offer family support, raise awareness, and encourage advocacy regarding pregnancy loss and neonatal death. Our focus is to prevent these stillbirths and ensure optimal care for families when prevention isn’t possible. Our passion comes from the memory of babies who left us too soon and the belief that every pregnancy deserves a happy ending.
We are honored to provide support and resources to families expecting a new baby or experiencing a pregnancy loss or neonatal death. This section offers information about keeping a pregnancy healthy, how to help a family experiencing a loss, resources available to bereaved families, and commonly asked questions.View Info for Families
Perinatal medicine is changing rapidly. We support research aimed at stillbirth prevention and care and work to bring emerging evidence to health providers. Additionally, we offer support and evidence-based resources to providers who care for families experiencing perinatal loss.View Info For Health Professionals

We will never forget the precious babies who left us too soon. Star Legacy Foundation initiatives are inspired by their memories. We honor and remember our ‘stars’ in this memorial. You are invited to remember these babies with us and add your own ‘star’. Memorial pages for individual ‘stars’ are also available.
One of our very close friends is a L&D nurse at Northwell health Manhasset and she went to a conference with your team. She told my wife how amazing your organization is and that we should look into it for help grieving, we lost our daughter just over five months ago, she was full term - 40 weeks and 4 days and passed on the way to the hospital in the ambulance. We are both still having trouble grieving and miss our little girl badly and we are hoping that your site will help.
Thank you for all that you do.
