Gaby and Jerome have done an amazing job of providing various online support groups for bereaved families and nurses, too, and have provided more info about the groups in the e-conference bag. Thank you, Gaby and Jerome, for all you do!

I will forever be grateful to the nurses who helped me through the stillbirth of my daughter at 39 weeks. They were truly angels here in earth! I wish I could say I had a good experience with my doctor but I will never forget her telling me what would be done in future pregnancy’s as I laid in that hospital bed holding my dead daughter. That was not the time or the place to discuss that! All I wanted was my daughter to be ok and her telling me all that was like her minimizing my loss, I could just have another. So to the doctors be gentle! Don’t talk about future pregnancy’s until your patient is ready for that.
