Description

What happens when a baby is stillborn? It isn’t something that is often discussed and we are rarely prepared for it.

In April 1999, my second son Brendan was stillborn at 20 weeks, his birth was traumatic as were the years following with grief and loss.

Megan Warren is an aspiring writer living in Esperance WA. She has a Master of Arts (Writing and Literature) and has facilitated writing and creativity workshops. Megan writes on the topics of pregnancy loss, stillbirth and grief.
