"A child born dead
arrives silently without a first cry
announcing ist appearance in this world."
The English language uses the term “stillbirth“ for this process.
The initiative “Stillbirth“ offers support to mothers and fathers who lost their child during pregnancy (miscarriage, stillbirth, induced abortion due to medical reasons), at birth or in the course of the baby’s first year. Since the whole family is directly concerned by the death of a child we also support siblings, grandparents and close relatives.
