In Memory of Alfie
Still Aware was formed by a mother to a baby born still, at 40 weeks in South Australia. Alfie Foord-Heath was born without breath on February 12, 2014. With no rhyme or reason for the death of this healthy baby girl, her mother and father - with the guidance of an advisory board and your help - aim to change how we talk about stillbirth prior to the tragedy, raising awareness in hopes of prevention.
To honour the babies who are no longer with us earth-side, we release live butterflies at twilight, to send our birthday wishes up to them in the sky. Butterflies are available for pre-purchase here.
About Still Aware
At Still Aware our focus is to bring about much needed awareness to the tragic event of a baby born still.
Every year more than 2000 babies are born still in Australia.
Daily 6 babies are born still in Australia…that’s one baby, one family, every 4 hours.
For every baby that dies of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), 35 are stillborn in Australia
Our Still Aware mission is to…
Raise awareness of stillbirth in Australia - to all people, including health care professionals responsible for the care of pregnant women
Lift the level of understanding to that of SIDS
Empower mothers to trust their babies and trust their instincts through regular third trimester self-monitoring and following their “gut” to insist on and feel comfortable asking for a check-up
Bring about change to the way in which we talk about and acknowledge a baby born still
