Stories of Remembrance

Giving your baby a voice.

At Still Aware we believe it is integral to allow the thousands of babies stillborn each and every year, the honour they deserve, to live on, in and though us. Whether you are parent to baby born without breath, an aunt, an uncle, a sibling, a relative or friend – please give these babies your voice and allow their memory to continue, through this platform of remembrance.
