Hello
Saf, I am so sorry to hear the lost of a little baby before it even entered the world.
My mother had a stillborn 1year 1 month before I was born. That was nearly 28 years ago now and to this day she finds it very hard to talk about the baby boy that she lost.
Although now we have alot more support groups and it alot easier for the parents of a stillborn espically the mother to talk things through. I think the best thing is to really encourage that there was a little person, and even though she graced a world for such a short time, she was their little girl and always will be in their hearts and their minds.
I hope SIL can hopefully come to terms with this unfortunate event and move on, but always remember that her little precious girl for the rest of her life.

hey keryn
ur so right about talking about the baby does help, well i dont really know from experince but talking about any thing usally helps. going back 28 years ago there wouldnt have been much support, and thinking back on it i dont think the society back then talked much about this sort of things...
