Help Prevent Stillbirths

Have you had a baby in the last 5 years?
Are you currently pregnant?
Have you ever had a baby die during pregnancy?

If you answered yes to ANY of the above — we need your help!

Information and Resources

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.

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.

Volunteers are the lifeblood of our organization and we welcome others who share our passion for the prevention of stillbirth and support for families who experience these tragic losses. There are many ways to join our team or support our efforts.

Congrats on your new little one!  This is an exciting time filled with many emotions.  We believe that Every Pregnancy Deserves A Happy Ending.  Information here can empower you with medical research to help keep your pregnancy and baby safe!


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.
