Coping with the loss of your stillborn infant

| Sep 7, 2018 | Birth Injuries

You looked forward with much-awaited anticipation to the arrival of your infant child and were stunned to find out that he or she passed away in utero. Now, you are left reeling with the unexpected stillbirth of your infant and trying to understand how to cope with such a tragic loss. At Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP, we have helped many families in New York work through the process of their infant’s death. 

Once the shock subsides, you will be coping with many difficult emotions while doing your best to recover physically from pregnancy and childbirth. During this time, it is critical that you have a strong support system with people who are committed to helping you find healing and comfort. You may have a desire to do something that will help you remember your child. Perhaps, that may be something tangible that you can hold when you are having a particularly difficult moment. Or maybe you want something to listen to or look at. According to, some of the ways you can memorialize your baby include the following:

  • Have molds of your infant’s hands and feet made.
  • Hire someone to photograph the birth or compile a video of birth photos. 
  • Save something from your baby such as a lock of hair. 
  • Select a special outfit, piece of jewelry or even a stuffed animal to keep with your baby so you can feel that he or she always has a piece of you near them. 

These are just some of the suggestions you may consider as you work through the grieving process and spend precious moments with your infant. Visit our webpage for more information about injuries at birth.
