I agree with this.



Besides that, there are so many more meaningful things that a grieving mother could keep in remembrance of her baby. I know at many the nurses will give a certificate to the mother. It's nothing that is actually official but it's something for her to hold in hand that is recognition from another that her baby existed.

Quoting BoOm French Toast:" How do you cremate blood and/or clots?"


In an incinerator on a tray the same way you would a full sized body. The fact is it is going to be rare for a hospital to deal with a m/c that small, for most women that will happen at home with no medical help, it will be women who are further along, as I was at 16 weeks, that require help or to be at the hospital while it happens.

There is not enough tissue to cremate early miscarriages.

Well they offered with my ectopic, if I had required surgery they would cremate the remains and have them returned to me if I had so wished.

I had my 11 week old fetus cremated, and the funeral home told me that there was nothing left, no ashes or anything.

It's BIO HAZARD material... if you feel that strongly then take yours home and burry it next to the cat. FFS.

Not a baby.

Quoting Nicholl Rowe:" The earliset the fetus is considered viable, is 28weeks. at this point the lungs have actually started to function, and secrete surfactant."

24 weeks. Read a book.

Quoting Nicholl Rowe:" I believe early labor. I had a friend who just miscarried at 5.5 months, and they still called it a miscarriage, not a still born."


Anything after 20 weeks is a still born.
