I have been reading here about how people are treated after a stillbirth or neonatal death - photos, foot and hand prints, memory boxes, certificates, information on grief and loss, clothing, blankets, name bracelets, scrapbooks ... I feel happy that things have changed since 1977 when my baby died. I am glad for the mothers and fathers now who can have real memories of their babies. But I feel I have missed out on so much and wonder if I will ever heal because I have no memories. I did not see or touch my baby. I cannot recall anyone in the hospital talking about her. I do not know what happened to her body. I am trying to make some memories. Does anyone have any ideas?
