In this episode, Chris Duffy visits with Danielle Pollock, a PhD candidate at the University of South Australia about stillbirth stigma.
Danielle is a passionate advocate of women’s health and stillbirth awareness. Danielle’s life changed direction dramatically when her daughter, Sofia was stillborn in 2014. Since then, she has been conducting research on stillbirth awareness, prevention, and stigma through her PhD at the University of South Australia. Danielle has an honors degree in Psychology and a graduate certificate in loss, grief and trauma counseling. She is currently completing her PhD, whilst teaching undergraduate students and being a mum to Charlie and Zoe. Danielle hopes that her research will change how we discuss stillbirth and let bereaved parents be able to say their baby’s name loudly and confidently.
