Volunteer to be a Stillbirth Spokesperson

The Stillbirth Advocacy Working Group (SAWG), co-chaired by the International Stillbirth Alliance (ISA) and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), has developed a Stillbirth Spokespersons Registry. We know that sharing personal experience is a powerful way to increase attention and advocate for action.

The registry contains names from different countries and with diverse experiences of stillbirth and newborn death.

We would like to invite those of you who are willing to share your story, experiences or expertise. We want the registry to include many different perspectives. You can, for example, be a Stillbirth Spokesperson if you are a mother, father, sibling or relative, a health care professional or an academic. Everyone in the Stillbirth Registry is speaking as an individual and not on behalf of SAWG.

We are looking for more spokepersons and encourage you to sign up or contact us for more information. We want your experience of being a Stillbirth Spokesperson to be positive, therefore we have written some suggestions for Stillbirth Spokespersons that we will send you and encourage you to read.

If media, journalists and communications or other staff of the United Nations, NGOs or other public or private organizations wish to get in contact with a spokesperson, we will first ask you to agree to being emailed by the requester. You can accept or decline in every case. If you are willing to be contacted, it is up to you to decide what kind of information and experience you would like to share about yourself and your baby.

Please contact us on for more information or to sign up for the registry.

We create meaningful connections for our members around the world.
