Dr.'s are calling for autopsies on still born babies to help them figure out what s going on and if they can prevent it in the future. I think this is a good idea! I m/c at 13 weeks and tho I am sure they wouldn't have been able to figure out the cause, I don't think they did enough to figure out the cause. So my next pregnancy was miserable as a worried the entire way through! I have a healthy baby boy now, but will not try again, it's just too difficult.
Maybe if they do these they can figure out a way to prevent this from happening AND lead healthier pregnancies. Some OB's don't want to frighten preg women by bringing this up and so when it happens women are generally too distraught to be ok with it. What do you think, good idea or bad? Brought up in routine dr visit or only if it happens?

I should have said that Emmy. They allow at least 7 hrs for the parents to say goodbye! OMG, it makes me tear up to even think about it!

I don't think it is always done and I am for this government funded or not as I am a proud supporter and participant in March of Dimes.
