Parents share emotional photos of their stillborn daughter

As a mum of two little boys, I found these photos and video very confronting, devastating but also beautiful.

On June 24th 2014, a Californian mum called Emily Staley gave birth to her still born daughter, Monroe Faith.

Emily and her husband Richard decided to get a photographer to take pictures of the delivery so they could remember their little girl.

With the parent permission the photographer shared the pictures on her Facebook page with an over whelming response. The aim being to raise awareness.

Six babies are born stillborn everyday in Australia so it effects many of us either directly or knowing someone who has been through this.

Below are the pictures of Monroe Faith and also a video about the story. Please take note that the images and story are very emotional.
