Please note that we cannot include any details that may identify: the facility, health care practice, any other person/healthcare workers involved etc, the city, any family members, or relatives of the baby.

My Story 

We will use a pseudonym in any printed, oral, online accounts. This is so your story will not be dismissed by those who wish to deny this issue is happening. We may need to follow up via email or phone to verify particulars of your story. 

We are looking for stories of babies born alive and left to die in Australia, and the information requested helps to give each baby an identity. 


As you share your story, you may wish to include these details on the baby. How did you know it was alive? Did it cry?  Did it seemed distressed?  What did it look like?  What did the Doctors do?  What did the nurses do?  What time did it die?


You may like to include your feelings, the effect it had on you, how you felt at he time? How do you feel about it now?


The writing space below is left intentionally large, your story can be short or long. Each one matters.    ​

The questions below relate to the babies weight, size, gestation and lifespan. You may have included these details in your story, but we would like particulars on the baby to present to law makers. 


The reason we are asking for specific information is to protect the credibility of your story.
