The article, “The horrible truth about losing a child at birth”, by Rebecca Levingston and Emma Sykes states
“Writer Rebecca Sparrow reveals the unspeakable grief that she and her family endured when her daughter Georgia Grace was stillborn.”
There is no doubt that losing a child at birth has to be among the most traumatic and painful things a parent can go through. The anticipation, the fact that in some cases the mother knows she is delivering a dead baby can all add to high levels of trauma.
Certified grief counselors can help these parents overcome their intense grief and pain. One of the most important things is for the parents to be allowed to mourn and touch the deceased infant. This is critical for closure and grief support.
