Giving birth

If you can, take some pictures of yourself still pregnant…you will cherish them.

There are things that you might want to bring to the hospital with you (or have someone bring to you or buy) for right after the birth of your stillborn baby:

  • The best camera you have;
  • The baby’s teddybear;
  • The baby’s blanket;

Ask the Hospital staff if they can take prints of your baby’s hands and feet: even if you don’t want to see them now, you might want to see them later on.
