Losing a baby, either before or shortly after birth, is a very unique loss not always recognized by the larger community. With pregnancy loss, stillbirth or newborn death, feelings of helplessness, shock and numbness are common and expected. Parents preparing for a lifetime with their child must now deal with grief and loss, a devastating experience that takes time to heal. Grieving parents often feel alone. Caring and well-meaning family and friends may not fully understand the fact that grieving mothers and fathers are coping with losing their ‘baby’. Support groups can offer a healing place to share with others who have experienced a similar loss.
