This organization doesn't really do anything. I searched and searched for an organization that was doing stillbirth research after I lost my son. When I talked to these folks they couldn't tell me just what they had accomplished or had in process. They are comprised of a number of organizations from around the world - I would recommend you skip this organization and find an organization that meets your interests in your own country.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

dissolve it

This org is made up of other member organizations, both nonprofit and for profit. If you don't care that your donation might not affect the stillbirth issue in your own country, or go to support another family experiencing stillbirth, but used to cover overhead and possibly travel for this organization, then you will want to donate to them. if you are interested in supporting stillbirth reform and family support in your own country, I suggest you look at their member list and contact one of their member nonprofit orgs in your country.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

trying to work on position statement for Seeing and Holding your stillborn baby, only to have it rejected by their board with no concrete reasoning. Can't help but wonder if members who are researchers are cliquish and don't want to recognize anything they themselves haven't come up with.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Have them listen to and work with parents who have experienced the stillbirth of a baby.
