Dedicated to serving families who experience the tragedy of stillbirth and the professionals who care for them -- in Wisconsin and throughout the world

Welcome to the WiSSP website. Perhaps you have lost a child to stillbirth, or know someone who has. You may be a health care provider or support professional, caring for families who have experienced this tragic loss. Whichever the case, this website has been created for you.

WiSSP, located at Marshfield Clinic, is a community-based, University-supported model for the investigation of the causes of stillbirth. WiSSP has helped to assess nearly 3,000 infants and provided diagnostic information for counseling of their families. In addition, WiSSP has helped provide educational materials, support resources, and scientific and medical data to families and medical personnel. With the creation of this website, WiSSP aims to provide this much needed information to all medical professionals, support personnel, families, and members of the general public who have access to the World Wide Web.

Becoming a WiSSP Benefactor

Initial production of this site was made possible by funding from the Perinatal Foundation. Portions of WiSSP activities have been supported by Maternal and Child Health Funds from the State of Wisconsin. Website revisions were made possible through donations made in memory of Catherine J. Reynolds, who was stillborn on August 31, 2001. Currently the website is supported by Marshfield Clinic.
