Yesterday, a friend of mine should give birth to her baby. But, the baby die before she could see the world. I think maybe the baby didn't response or suffocate. Is there any reasons behind this case? Any mom's or parent have this kind of stories? I pray that they will have babies soon.

Your friend needs to go to a specialist and be checked out! I lost a baby years and years ago when I was 6 months prgnant. I found out this next time I was pregnant was that I have a condition where my blood will clot and it blocks up the umbilical cord and the baby basically isn't feed and can't grow! I was blessed with a doctor that was a specialist the second and third time around and she ran all kinds of test when she found out I had a misscariage and never got a reason what happened. I had to have blood thinner shots the whole 8 months and they hurt but it was so worth it! I have 2 healthly children and I am truly blessed. It will happen for her she just needs to use every resource available to make sure she is healthy!

That's what I've been thinking all day. After I heard the news, I was so sad. I myself go to a specialist from the day 1, I know I was pregnant. Until the due date, I still go to my doctor. I have overdue actually, we've waited 1 week after the due date. Then, when doctor said that baby still not engaged and the baby must come out. This to avoid baby die or suffocate. Since I can't give normal birth, I was advise to go for c-sect. Thank God! My baby was good and fine condition. She was 7 month old now. It was good for you to go to specialist even they are quite expensive, but the care we need while we're pregnant is the most important.

These babies are just not meant to be. It must be something that has gone wrong. Many of these mothers have these experience more than once.

Its true. I hope mom or parents can support each other when this kind of thing happen. I'd really sad to hear babies can't live and be alive to see the world. Its always something good behind the incident. Maybe they can have twins or more later on. I pray!

It's very sad, but most everyone knows a woman who has lost her baby late in the pregnancy. My sister-in-law lost twin baby boys in her eighth month of pregnancy. They got tangled in each other's umbilical cords and suffocated. It was heart wrenching. But she did go on to have another healthy baby boy. Most women do.

That's very sad for your friend. I think that this baby came into her life (even if only in-womb) for a reason. Perhaps to teach her compassion for others who have lost children, or some unknown reason that only she can discover. I hope she goes on to have more children in the future.

That's why. I will visit her to motivate and calm her. Thanks LInda!
