Abstract

For most parents the death of their infant is the first serious crisis in their lives. This event is regarded by all young parents as more stressful than previous deaths in the family, divorce, separation, alcoholism, or suicide. The infant death may be the first death in the family. The grief reaction is not stereotyped; it is as varied as the individuals experiencing it and the families of which they are a part. Several patterns of grief will be treated here.
