Is it normal to keep your dead baby

Miscarriages can effect women in many ways, I heard cases of women going crazy and kidnapping babies claiming it is theirs because of their trauma... and some mothers keeping the babies dead body or unable to clean out the room that was supposed to be for their child..

I was just wondering is this normal. I mean the trauma they go through is considered normal but how is one really supposed to behave.

Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thanks!

  • If you have a stillborn then you usually keep the baby for a few hours afterwards to cuddle and bathe it. It's a standard thing that hospitals do, which is supposed to help with the grieving process.

    • I don't get how they can cuddle the body, then burn it or bury it, when the body is almost all they have known of the person... barring perhaps the little kicks in utero and... well, what would I know?

      I'm sorry if I have hurt anyone - I am just ignorant. >.<

  • Yeah trauma is a tough thing. I think it is normal for mothers to struggle to clean out the child’s room. That would probably take some time for them to come around. Keeping the baby’s dead body is a bit odd. I would think that it would be better for them to have the baby cremated and then keep the ashes.

  • I've heard of some families keeping the baby for a short period of time to aid the griecing process...I think the hospitals assist in keeping the body cooled through the process. It is meant to help. It gives me the creeps and I wouldn't want to, but I've never been the parent of a dead baby, so I wouldn't know.

  • There are no easy answers for dealing with trauma.

    Its not abnormal to keep a body for at least a few days...

    There are cases where bodies have been kept for decades... While it is eventually buried... I've never heard of any charges against the parents for cases of natural death of a baby.

  • It's a truely terrible affair. If that happened to me, I would cremate it and then scatter the ashes. Not all life succeeds, but through the ashes, a new life can get a kickstart.

    • I can't imagine having to look at the decomposed appearance and rotting smell, but I can understand because there was a terrible affair involved.
