I hate to judge a book by its cover, but she don't look like mom material.

Part of me thinks this is really sweet and part of me thinks, this poor woman finally gets to the point where she can move on emotionally - and some guy painstakingly handcrafts this metaphoric scab picker to reopen that old emotional wound?

About 1 in 160 pregnancies end in stillbirth.  Not that her emotional loss wasn't difficult, but I can't figure out why she wouldn't keep the kid and try to get pregnant again at some point in the future.

Woman gets pregnant again and sends the chair back to be remade into a crib -- the circle of life

Now that would be news.

Guess I'm a sucker. I think it's a sweet story. I mean, I think the old guy's heart is in the right place, regardless of whether it's a good idea to surprise a stranger with something like that. Which it isn't, really, but that was his call on that.

I'm assuming he meant crib? Yeah, sure, keep a crib around to remind you of your loss; that's a great emotional plan, and think of the money you'll save on buying a new one. Jesus, how cheap are you?

Wow...seems strange to just give away the second kid.  There's this thing called birth control is you didn't want to have a second one.

This is what I think.  Keep a few things to look at every now and then but get rid of the rest of it and move on.  It's not good to perpetually morn a passing.  Time heals, but not if you have a daily reminder of the bad thing that happened.

The majority of pregnancies do not come to term, so if you're going to get rid of the baby equipment after each one its going to get mighty expensive.  I think in the long run it would be more comforting to understand that losing a baby like this is part of the natural process and there will be other opportunities, very soon, to try again.

Totally.

One of the biggest problems that humanity has is its collective inability to get over the death of a loved one. You have to LET IT GO. Or you'll go crazy.

Oh F*ck no.  Never, ever say that to a grieving parent.


To those of you who say that the mom needs to get over it, or that this gift could reopen the wounds, I can say from experience that you don't ever "get over" or "move on" from losing a child, and bringing it up doesn't remind you that it happened.  You always remember.  (That doesn't mean you don't keep going on with your life, of course.)

Agreed. I'd also caution that it may not be safe to say anything along the line of "well, you can always just try again!" When I was in the delivery room for an induced stillbirth the on-call OB/GYN said to me "Meh, you know who I really feel bad for? Women who can't get pregnant in the first place". While I realized on some level that he didn't know me or have any way of knowing that I'd already had a room full of specialists advise me NOT to try again, the part of me that recognized that was busy and exceptionally pissed off, and it still took two nurses and my ex to keep me from punching him in the face.

My mom has three little brothers who grew up to become my very entertaining uncles, but before they were born she had a sister who only lived for three days. A few years ago, my grandpa got my grandma a charm bracelet, and there were birthstones for all five children--over half a century after the baby died. They moved on (I mean, they had three more kids after that!), but they never really got over it.
