Seventeen babies a day die in the UK, yet existing research suggests that stillbirth and neonatal loss remains a marginal topiC. There is a need to explore how men and women experience the stillbirth or neonatal death of their child. While the professional literature discusses such deaths, it is unclear from where these perspectives are derived, professionals or parents. This book addresses parents perspectives and seeks to develop a greater of the meaning of the death of a child following stillbirth and neonatal death. This serves to provide valuable insight for professionals who work with bereaved parents, whilst also adding to existing research about bereavement and the multidisciplinary orientations to understanding death and grief in contemporary western societies. Though this has particular relevance to an academic audience, it would serve further to support bereaved parents as they attempt to derive meaning from reading other men’s and women’s bereavement experiences.
