After Your Stillbirth

The Grief Journey

Grief is hard work and takes energy. Everyone experiences loss differently. There’s no set time limit to feel sadness or the pain of loss. The best thing you can do is to allow yourself and your partner the time to heal and find meaningful ways to remember. Let yourself, your partner, and family do what’s most helpful for each of you.

Besides the physical recovery, emotional and spiritual healing are important. Emotional healing usually takes much longer than the physical healing. Open communication will help. Since everyone feels loss differently try not to judge each other’s reactions. Even though both you have lost the same baby, how you respond to your grief may be very different.
