This is the stillbirth story of George Robert, told by his mom Miranda. Originally from Canada, Miranda and her husband Graham have been living in London for work, and they made the decision to start trying to have a baby. She talks about her pregnancy and "going to" appointments (telemedicine) and how George was progressing during the COVID-19 pandemic.
After feeling no movement from George one morning around 39 weeks, Miranda headed to the hospital to be checked. They couldn't find a heartbeat, and Miranda gave birth to George the following day. She and Graham did not want to see George after he was born, and with some encouragement from their bereavement midwife, they both did see him and spent time with him. This is George's story.
