Still A Part of Us: A podcast about pregnancy loss, stillbirth, and infant loss

Oct 25, 2021

Mom Taylor shares the heartbreaking story of finding out that her first child, her daughter Hazel's heartbeat stopped around 36 weeks gestational age and that she would be stillborn. She and her husband Tad were devastated and she describes her pregnancy, finding out, delivering Hazel, and spending time with her in the hospital. She also tells of her beautiful funeral service and the autopsy results.
