Visitor rating
4.0 from 0 reviews

This film sensitively examines the pain of perinatal loss, when a newborn baby dies suddenly or is stillborn. The grief in such cases can be as great or greater than the death of an older child, but often the parent's feelings are not adequately provided for by medical staff.
