Father Stephen Talks to us about his daughter Ophelia Lennox, who was stillborn at 39 weeks and 4 days. Stephen and his wife Victoria were at one of the last checkups before the due date when the midwife couldn't find a heartbeat. They rushed to the hospital to deliver their daughter Ophelia in January of 2019.
