Lindsey J. Wimmer, RN, MSN, PHN, CPNP, CPLC Lindsey Wimmer is the Founder and Executive Director of the Star Legacy Foundation based in Minnesota with 25 chapters across the United States. As a pediatric nurse practitioner, she was shocked and embarrassed when her first son was stillborn at term after a ‘textbook pregnancy’. She did not realize that stillbirth was something that still happened and even more concerned when looking for medical literature on the topic. Finding out that 26,000 babies are stillborn in the US each year and for most the cause is never known and that research was virtually non-existent at that time as to why this was the case–was unacceptable. Today the Foundation is dedicated to pregnancy & infant loss awareness, research, education, advocacy and family support. This presentation will discuss the newly launched Pregnancy Research Project the Foundation is conducting in partnership with Michigan Medicine at the University of Michigan.
