Acknowledging the lost child.

A stillbirth is the death of a baby during or before birth. Once the child has reached the 20th week of pregnancy or 400 grams in weight, it is considered to be a child who has died.

Heartfelt‘ is a volunteer organisation of photographers, and its President, Gavin Blue spoke to Tim Brunero.
