32-year-old British woman said goodbye to her stillborn son for 15 days

Categories: Children | Health and Medicine

Lynsey Bell, 32, from Newcastle upon Tyne, UK, was told by doctors that her unborn son Rory would never take a deep breath, never laugh or cry. After a difficult pregnancy, 5 weeks before the due date, the woman felt severe pain and found out in the hospital that her baby's heart was no longer beating. Minutes after the start of labor, she began to bleed profusely, which caused Linsey to fall into a coma for two days.

And when I woke up, I decided that I just couldn't help but see Rory. She and her husband Mark had to say goodbye to their son and spent 15 days with him: cradling him, bathing him and reading bedtime stories.

Lynsey admitted that at first she was afraid to even look at Rory, but then realized that she had to do at least that little for her son before burying him.

After Linsey recovered from the coma, the hospital medical staff placed the boy's body in the refrigerator so that Linsey and her husband could visit him as often as they wanted.

When it was time to be discharged from the hospital, the couple took Rory for the night so that their family could say goodbye to him for the last time before the funeral.

Rory was buried next to his great-grandfather. There is always a candle burning on his grave. "He is as much a part of the family as our other children. I will never forget him, and his candle will burn as long as I can keep it burning."
