WELCOME TO THE WISCONSIN CHAPTER OF THE STAR LEGACY FOUNDATION!

Our service area includes the entire state of Wisconsin. Established in 2017, we are a motivated group of parents, relatives, and friends of stillborn babies. Our mission is to educate the medical community and public about stillbirth, raise funds for research, and ultimately prevent the loss of children to stillbirth. We believe that stillbirth is a tragic loss that in many cases can be prevented.

If you are in our area and want to connect with other parents who have experienced the loss of a stillborn child, or want to work to prevent pregnancy loss and neonatal death, please contact us. We also welcome questions from expectant parents who want to learn what they can do to ensure a healthy pregnancy.
