Miscarriage and Stillbirth - What is the difference?
For parents who have lost a baby to either miscarriage or stillbirth the experience is often traumatic and can take some time to recover from.
If you have suffered from miscarriage or stillbirth there are various organisations which can offer support or your doctor can refer you for counselling if he feels it is necessary. In many cases time helps dull the pain, but most parents who have lost their baby to miscarriage or stillbirth carry the memory of their lost baby forever.
Talking to family, friends and using support groups can help immensely and many parents also find online communities and forums a good way to chat to other parents who have suffered miscarriage or stillbirth.
