This paper looks at how people react to the news of a baby dying around its time of birth by a woman whose son was stillborn and who now leads a support group for other parents. She presents some of the statements and actions made by other people to families which tend to hurt rather than help. The paper concludes with advice on what will help, such as making no judgements.
