What if my baby won’t survive?

Many parents who received this news and continued their pregnancy to term say the chance to hold and care for their child, even if just for a few moments, helped them to grieve and heal after their child passed away.

They have memories that they cherish and are consoled knowing they did all they could to care for and love their sick baby.

As a society, we should strive to increase and improve perinatal hospice care and support for these babies and their families.
