Father's Grief After Stillbirth

I am sorry you have landed on the Father's Grief website. This is not a happy place to be; stillbirth and baby loss can never be this.

Hopefully, after reading some of this website's material, bereaved parents will accept that all of these emotions are OK after your baby dies; no-one should judge you for doing what you need to do.
