R.I.P. Emma Louise (Update in blue)

Thinking of my close friend who lost her little girl last night. She went into labor at 20 weeks and despite trying most everything they couldn't stop the labor. Little Emma Louise was only alive for 3 mins before dying in the arms of her mom. I can't even help her but from a distance being 29 weeks pregnant myself but I'm filled with fear and empathy.

Update:

I guess the biggest issue for me is that doctors don't even try to save a baby that young. They did ask her if she wanted them to even try or if she just wanted to hold her. She said "If she's gonna die, I'd rather it be in my arms then on some table surrounded by doctors."
