I got an email on FB informing me that the tv show The Doctors are looking for topics to discuss on their show. One of those topics is stillbirth. Here is copy of the email that I received;
Dear Stillbirth Mommies & Friends,
The suggestion of Stillbirth Research & Education ha been submitted for a segment on the NBC program The Doctor’s.
Now we need your help!
The most popular segments are selected for production – please go to the website below and vote for this suggestion. Ask your friends to vote frequently and get the word out. This would be a tremendous opportunity to gain the awareness that we need. PLEASE put the voting information on your respective websites. Copy this message and send to everyone in your address books.
Go to: www.thedoctorstv.com/produce/vote –
look for the following submission. It is categorized under Women’s Health.
Stillbirth – Stop the Madness!
You can vote once a day, and believe me I will be. I strongly feel that most of the population has no idea about stillbirth. I know I didn't. I really honestly thought that if we made it past the first trimester that we would be fine. I'm sorry to say that I was naive and boy did I find out the hard way. The more we can bring this topic to light then the higher the probability of more research being done. So little is known about the causes of stillbirth right now. Its sad that we can clone a human being and animal but we still know so little about the causes of miscarriages. Please help change this, Go Vote!
I was misinformed, you may only vote once on each topic. So even more important that we spread the word now. Its up to over 4000 votes right now, which is only a few hundred more than when I posted this, so please, if you havent voted yet, please use the link above and do so! I'll thank you in advance, THANK YOU!!!! ;P
