The death of a baby is a devastating experience for the parents, their family and friends. Many families describe it as a very difficult, isolating and life changing experience. Other children in the family may feel sad and disappointed that the expected sibling will not be with them. Adults need to be aware that the child will be affected by the loss and take this into account if there are changes in their behaviour.
