Stillbirth at 41 weeks

I had everything ready, we'd bought his pram, had all his clothes and stocked up on nappies.

Baby loss submission

Story by Chloe

I was 40 +6 days when I got the devastating news that my little boys heart was no longer beating.

A day later I gave birth to a beautiful 8lb baby boy. I had everything ready, we'd bought his pram, had all his clothes, stocked up on nappies and we had to come home to all of that but without my little man.

So many questions I have and so little answers, I'm only 4 weeks into this ordeal and its killing me because how can the world be fair when a mother has to live without her child.
