Every year, 26,000 babies are stillborn in America. In 2003, one of them was my son.

Stillbirth Makes Headlines at Newsweek

Just a quick update before I get ready for my day: Jessica Clark-Roe, of the organization Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep, which trains photographers to take portraits of stillborn babies--or babies who aren't expected to survive--and their families, has placed two articles about her organization and stillbirth in Newsweek magazine. The links are here and here.

More from me later....

"Stillbirth happens more often than we imagine—10 times more often than sudden infant death syndrome, or SIDS, a condition most every parent knows about and dreads. Every year some 26,000 babies die during or after the 20th week in their mothers' womb or die during birth."

I wish everyone knew this. Thanks for linking to these articles.

Coincidentally, the same week that the Newsweek article was published, I posted an interview with a young woman who has suffered through this tragic birth experience on my blog, Aberration Nation. Here's the link: http://www.penelopeprzekop.blogspot.com/. It's certainly a timely topic - and one that we should be more open about discussing.
