Supporting Families, Preventing Tragedies

The stories on these pages are told by mothers and fathers,
in their own words. 

They have chosen the language and the emotion of their individual stories.

These are the very personal stories of very personal experiences and tragedies.  We are not here to edit or soften them for the comfort of the reader.  We are here to share and to support.  Sharing our birth stories is a step on the path to healing.
We trust you will read them with empathy and understanding.
