Birth Plans

These are ways that you can make any birth method meaningful and really honor the life of your baby.

Mothers who experience pregnancy loss are at risk of developing postpartum major depression. The risk of this depression is highest within the first six months after delivery.

The mothers who are at greatest risk of becoming depressed are those who fail to show any signs of grief during the first two weeks after the loss (source).

Experiencing pregnancy loss in a way that demonstrates the reality of your baby’s life, and death, is important to your postpartum health.
