What does it feel like? Could I have it?
Trust your instincts.

“It feels constantly tired”
“It’s having a lack of feeling for the baby”
“It’s having frightening thoughts or fantasies”
“It feels out of control”
“It feels like ‘I’m never going to feel like myself again”
“It feels like I’m a bad mother”
“It feels like I should never have had this baby”
“It feels like I have no patience for anything anymore”
“It feels like my marriage cannot survive this”
“It feels like if I could only get a good nights sleep, everything would be better”
“It feels like no one understands”
“It feels like I’m going crazy”
“It feels like I will always feel like this”

What can I do about it?
Focus on self-help measures, such as resting as much as you can, eating right, stop blaming yourself, talking to someone you trust about your feelings. Let your doctor know. Find a local therapist that specializes in pp depression. DO NOT wait to get proper treatment. Do not let feelings of shame, guilt, or embarrassment get in the way of you getting help. The longer you wait, the harder it is to treat.

When a Child Dies – Surviving the Tragic Death of a Child or Perinatal Loss

Difficult Questions After Perinatal Death
What if I have a stillbirth or if it happens to someone I know?
The MISS Foundation has volunteers who can help you or someone that you know who may be going through this tragedy.

Will I still have to go through labor if my baby dies?
Most often yes, Even if a baby is stillborn before the onset of labor, most women will experience labor and childbirth in the same way a “live birth”. Having a birth doula, supportive family members, and pain management can help ease what you will be going through.
