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

A Film About Stillbirth

I stumbled on information about a stillbirth film this week. The film, titled "Peekaboo," is in production in the UK. The production company, Big Buddha Films, bills itself as an "independent film company that focuses on making films with a strong female voice, that tackle human dilemmas, and show the vulnerabilities of human existence."

I'm not sure I can envision a film on stillbirth, and I'm not even sure I'd want to watch one. (Having lived through it is enough.) It's an interesting idea, however, and I think it might do some good to raise awareness.

Readers, what are your thoughts on a stillbirth film?
