I also want to take this opportunity to talk about stillbirth awareness, or sudden antenatal death syndrom (SADS). I was amazed to discover it is 10 times more common than SIDS, and the number of babies that die of SADS rivals that of breast cancer deaths a year (30,000). Yet it is such a taboo topic, it just doesn't seem to get the press.
One forum I've been on a lot recently is MISS, it's a great community of mourning parents, but also a place for social action. I'm currently working on getting a MISSing Angels bill passed in Nebraska (working the unicameral) which would give certificates of birth resulting in stillbirth to parents. I first heard about it on NPR long before I ever had Myles. Anyway, there has been some pretty recent press coverage of these bills, unfortunately it tends to get embroiled in the abortion debate. Pretty frustrating for somebody as pro-choice as I am as the intent and texts of these bills are all about giving mother's choices.
