Every parent’s greatest fear

Too many babies still die in pregnancy or childbirth. The numbers are heartbreaking: approximately 10-15% of pregnancies end in miscarriage, generally before 28 weeks, and 2.6 million babies are stillborn every year.
There are different cultural attitudes to losing a baby, and women have access to different levels of quality antenatal care worldwide. Yet as varied as the experience of losing a baby may be around the world, stigma, shame and guilt emerge as common themes.
We gathered first-person stories from around the world. Women who lose their babies were made to feel that should stay silent about their grief, either because miscarriage and stillbirth are still so common, or because they are perceived to be unavoidable.
