I watched the show a baby story on TLC today. I kept thinking...are they ever going to have a person with a stillbirth on there. The next episode was of a woman who had a stillbirth, miscarriage, and was now about to deliver a healthy baby. I was irritated to no end how they didn't even talk about the stillbirth. There was one comment where she said she got a box of stuff from the hospital when she delivered her son who was stillborn. That was it...then they flashed to a picture of a TINY fetus-obviously not the stilborn baby because this was the size fetus of my first ultrasound I ever had! And then they just moved on through the episode! I was furious, if you are going to talk about stillbirth, at least portray it correctly. I don't know why, but it just made me mad. Why are people so afraid to talk about this issue?
