Why did baby die?: Mothering children living with the loss, love and continuing presence of a baby sibling


Why did baby die?: Mothering children living with the loss, love and continuing presence of a baby sibling captures the profound impact children have on a mother’s grief after the loss of her baby. In this research-based documentary mothers also tell how young children respond to the loss of their baby sibling. Despite the permanence of the physical loss, children continue to connect with their deceased siblings in various ways while creating new meanings of their experience of loss and love which they carry into adolescence.
