Some films simply demand to be made, no matter how challenging or unpopular their subject matter. 7,000 babies are stillborn every single day. Yet talking about it remains a taboo. Still Loved is a story of love, loss and courage. We witness the struggle, determination and surprising humor as families find challenging and inspiring ways to rebuild their lives after the loss of a tiny life.
Panel Discussion: On women’s pre-natal health, pregnancy and various issues surrounding childbirth.
