It's aggravating to lose a child, and people experiencing it may suffer from depression and anxiety overcoming that sorrow is not simple. Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and stillbirths can also be a considerable shock, taking a toll on the spouse as they try to deal with their baby's death.

At Lietz-Fraze Funeral Home, we understand that these feelings can come in waves and that you may experience grief, guilt, rage, denial, and disbelief at various points.

Coping With This Loss

Allowing yourself to grieve and experience all of these feelings is critical if you are mourning the death of a SIDS child. Additionally, you must communicate these sentiments with your partner, spouse, or other close relatives. This is a trying period, and speaking with somebody that you trust may help you cope better. It is a more natural way to heal for many people, especially if they have lost a child.

Additionally, you might consider holding a memorial or burial ceremony to assist you in saying your final goodbyes and dealing with your grief. As you place your infant to sleep, you will be able to acknowledge your baby. You can retain souvenirs such as a photograph, a hand or footprint, or even a strand of your child's hair.


Without question, coping with the death of a stillborn baby is traumatic, but by supporting your spouse and seeking equivalent assistance for yourself, you could recover more quickly. Some people feel they need solitude to heal while others need company and support. Every person heals differently and you need to try different things to see what works best for you.
