I Will Carry You – My Love Song to Judah at her 39 Week Stillbirth

About 1 in 160 pregnancies result in stillbirth.

Denalee Chapman November 21, 2014

From Selah’s “You Deliver Me” CD, this video is filled with all the emotion of loving parents.

Sadly, about 1 in 160 pregnancies result in stillbirth.  Stillbirth is defined as the intrauterine death that occurs after 20 weeks gestation.  Many of those who have experienced stillbirth want answers:  Why?  What happened?

Although only an autopsy can be conclusive, according to the American Pregnancy Association common reasons for stillbirth include:

  • Placental problems
  • Birth defects
  • Growth restriction
  • Infections
  • Umbilical cord accidents
  • Trauma

The Daily Strength Stillbirth Support Group offers free, anonymous support from those who have experienced stillbirth themselves.
