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.

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.
