Mission:
Our Mission
The Star Legacy Foundation mission is to increase awareness, support research, education and family advocacy regarding stillbirth.


Our Vision
We believe there is great hope for the future to prevent many stillbirths in the United States and around the world and we intend to bring this hope to light. We envision that through the utilization of technology, education and grassroots efforts, we can empower parents and families to be an advocate for their unborn babies.


We Believeā€¦
Many stillbirths are preventable.
Expectant parents should be informed about stillbirth risks and educated on ways to protect their pregnancy.
Standard prenatal protocols should include a third trimester ultrasound to identify known stillbirth risk factors and subsequent management through home fetal monitoring when risk factors are identified.
A national stillbirth registry should be created with mandatory participation to accurately collect stillbirth data.
Stillbirth autopsies should be encouraged and performed consistently with established protocols.
Stillborn children should be recognized with a certificate of birth.
Families deserve and are entitled to support and guidance when facing the delivery of a stillborn child.
Stillbirth, birth injury (cerebral palsy and others), premature birth and miscarriages may have some common denominators - finding answers to stillbirth may enlighten the path to reducing miscarriage, premature birth, and birth injury
Results:
During 2010 the Star Legacy Foundation accomplished a number of organizational goals including the publishing of a cookbook as a fund raising effort, redesign of the website, board development, the 5th annual Golfing for Garrett benefit and more. In 2011 the Star Legacy Foundation developed a stillbirth awareness and prevention campaign "See Me, Feel Me" designed to encourage parents to advocate for their unborn child. (www.seemefeelme.org) In late 2011 the Star Legacy Foundation will host the first Stillbirth Summit bringing together an international panel of independent researchers to share their research efforts and collaborate on moving the stillbirth prevention agenda forward.
