Our Mission

 Stillborn And Infant Loss Support (SAILS) is dedicated to helping those  who have lost their child by letting them know that they are not alone. 




How We Impact

Through outreach programs and fundraising, we aim to increase awareness about stillbirth and ensure that those affected have a strong support network during their time in need.

Raising Awareness

With over 25,000 stillborn children born every year in the US, our mission is to remember, reflect and educate.

Survivor Support

Losing a child is the hardest thing in the world.  We offer a support system that gives survivors the assistance they need at all times.
