Loss leaves its mark on the family system, and on the people who have lost a relative or a close one.
This is something widely acknowledged.
What happens when the loss we experience is of someone not yet born?
Consider the effect of the following: miscarriages, abortions, stillbirths, A twin being absorbed in the womb by the other twin or by the body of the mother, IVF fetuses failing to mature, pregnancies that naturally stop at the first trimester…
All of these are forms of loss, of someone who was here for a short while and is no more.
How does it affect the mother, the father, the siblings?
What is their embodied, often unconscious, sense of what has happened?
How may post-birth depression, lack of connection with your baby, and other symptoms, be related to death before birth.
