Born in Silence video

About Born in Silence
Approximately 3 million babies are stillborn each year throughout the world. In the U.S., that’s one baby, one family, every 21 minutes. In partnership with parents who have experienced a stillbirth, GAPPS created a video called Born in Silence, with the goal of breaking the silence around this all-too-common tragedy.

Help Break the Silence!


Born in Silence was named a Cinema Corner finalist for the Women Deliver 2013 global conference. Born in Silence was also named a Silver Winner for three Telly Awards in 2013: People's Choice for Video; Film/Video; Online Video.
