6/4 - Comforting Moment - Information Helps During Times of Loss

For many parents the loss of a baby is among the highest levels of loss, if not the highest.

While little can assuage the difficult and forgotten grief surrounding stillbirth and neonatal death, information can be helpful regarding the normal feelings and experiences which leave parents in an emotional and spiritual wilderness.
Dr. Elizabeth K. Best

While information cannot take away the intense pain and sorrow you are feeling, getting informed and reading useful resources can help parents to understand the physical and emotional responses and find ways of managing these responses.

Information can also help parents find suggestions and resources that others who have been in similar situations have found to be helpful during their own time of loss.
