Following a meeting with families impacted by stillbirths, Senator Daines cosponsored the bipartisan “SHINE for Autumn Act” which would advance research and education about stillbirths. Gabrielle and Bridger Deschamps shared the stillbirth story of their daughter Harlow at 34 weeks. Harlow’s death was preventable and the Deschamps hope that through the “SHINE Act” future babies and families will be saved from stillbirth.
