This hour, our guests help us understand stillbirth – who it affects, why it’s still prevalent, and what the medical community is doing to help reduce stillbirth rates.
We also discuss the impact that stillbirth has on families. Our guests are mothers who have lost children to stillbirth, and they’re now sharing their stories to help to raise awareness of pregnancy loss:
- Dr. Heather Florescue, clinical instructor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Rochester Medical Center
- Christina Fedczuk, chair of the Western New York Chapter of Star Legacy Foundation, who lost her son Vincent at 38 weeks
- Jennifer Chappell, co-chair of the Western New York Chapter of Star Legacy Foundation, and founder of The Cooper Project in honor of her son Cooper who she lost at 38 weeks
- Nicole Collins, stillbirth awareness advocate who lost her son Will, a twin, at 32 weeks
