Each year in Australia, approximately 150,000 couples experience reproductive loss; about 147,000 experience a miscarriage, 1,750 babies are stillborn and about 850 babies die in the first 28 days after birth. Sands promotes awareness, parent support and understanding following the death of a baby (occurring any time from conception through to newborn).
