A midwife's view of stillbirth

Sometimes birth is not about life, rather it is about death.

An eye-opening story about stillbirth from a midwife in the New York Times:

"She was a low-risk patient. No complications. No warning that this might happen. Just a previously healthy baby who stopped kicking and died. One day, a heartbeat. The next day, none."
