Stillbirth Poems - Written by Grieving Parents to Help After the Loss of a Baby

Stillbirth poems are a precious way to remember your baby and to help you cope in some way if you have ever experienced the pain of losing your baby to stillbirth.

Some parents like to create their own poem, whereas for others a poem which helps them express their own feelings is enough. The following poems all deal with the issue of stillbirth and make lovely verses for memory cards or keepsakes.
