Panelists

Claire Foord

Stillbirth is a devastation that no family should endure but sadly it is a turmoil that will live with Claire forever. In February 2014 she and her husband welcomed a precious baby girl into this world. On the same day, as swiftly as she saw her, she had to say goodbye – her daughter Alfie was stillborn at term – a perfect baby, with no illness or issue, but without breath. This devastating tragedy saw Claire campaign and establish Still AwareA passionate advocate, Claire hopes to bring about change and a high level of awareness that stillbirth deserves. Claire’s efforts have been recognized when she was awarded South Australia’s Local Hero, in the 2016 Australian of The Year Awards.

Leigh Brezler 

Leigh Brezler is the CEO of The Stillbirth Foundation Australia which was established in 2005 to raise funds to reduce the incidence and impact of stillbirth through research, education and advocacy. Beyond ensuring the Foundation’s mission is fulfilled, Leigh’s focus is on ensuring the stillbirth community – from bereaved parents to healthcare workers – feels supported and that parents’ voices are heard and validated. 

Fran Boyle

Associate Professor Fran Boyle is a Health Services Researcher at The University of Queensland’s Institute for Social Science Research and a Principal Investigator with the Stillbirth Centre of Research Excellence, where she co-leads the Care after Stillbirth program. She is committed to improving outcomes for parents and families when a baby dies and, like many who are drawn to research and practice in this area, her passion for this area began with her own lived experience of the loss of her first baby soon after birth. Fran is deeply committed to ensuring that policy and practice around perinatal bereavement care reflects both the latest evidence and the perspectives of parents and their care providers.
