- Still Parenting: when new events occur in your life, such as a subsequent pregnancy/child, you can share that and we can link your stories together, keeping a journal of your own unique path. In gathering all of your pieces together, you’ll have a special place to keep them in our Still Parenting diary section. Please, note in the sharing field below if you are starting or adding to your Still Parenting diary.

We at stillbirthday recognize that grief is not linear and that in bereavement, we may experience many, many various feelings. Please, take your time and look around here at our many resources, from before, during or after the birth of your baby. Please, utilize our emergency crisis resources if you ever feel tempted to harm yourself or others. We also have an invitation if your experience includes being bullied, as grieving online is a unique issue that we at stillbirthday take very seriously. If you have any questions regarding submissions and/or comments that can be made at stillbirthday, please learn about your sharing rights and responsibilities.
You can email and share up to 3 photos to be included with your story. They will be added to the bottom of your baby’s birth story. For more photos you might consider a Still Parenting journal. By default, when you email with attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org, your story is published here without a password and is NOT shared directly at Facebook. If you’d like to change either of these, simply indicate in your email.
If you’d like to share with our Facebook community as well, you’ll need to visit our Pledge to Be Me - because we do not ever reshare your experiences and hold a high level of confidentiality and honor for your experiences. If you already know you’d like to see your stillbirthday URL shared with our community, you can check that field below. You can still have your piece password protected, as well.
