The Issue: Loss of Infants by Stillbirth

For the families of a stillborn baby, the sense of grief is sudden and overwhelming. Emotions whipsaw from the joy and anticipation of welcoming a long-awaited addition to the family to indescribable depths of sorrow. Unfortunately, 1 in 160 pregnancies result in a stillbirth—defined as the death of an infant in utero after 20 completed gestational weeks—amounting to more than 26,000 instances each year. The immediate aftermath is often a period of profound shock and sadness for parents, who are still responsible for the costs of a delivery even though they leave the hospital without a baby to take home.

The Campaign: Relieving the Financial Burden After a Stillbirth

All donations to this Grassroots campaign will be used by Hayden’s Helping Hands to provide financial assistance to families who have experienced a stillbirth. For every $1,000 this Grassroots campaign raises, the organization can cover at least one family’s medical bills for the delivery, which typically range from $500 to $1,000. The funds are paid directly to the hospital.

Hayden's Helping Hands

After their daughter, Hayden, was stillborn at 32 weeks of gestation in 2010, Rebekka and Randy Hauskin's hospital bills served as a painful reminder of their loss. As a result, they decided that they wanted to help other families dealing with this type of tragedy, and in memory of their daughter, created the Oregon-based nonprofit Hayden's Helping Hands. The foundation helps Oregonians after the birth of a stillborn baby by paying for a portion or all of their hospital delivery expenses, so they can focus on healing rather than financial burdens. The amount of financial assistance is determined by the foundation on a case-by-case basis, and all payments are made directly to the medical facility.
