This is such a difficult space to work in, Amanda.
I worked in maternity when I had just qualified and we had a lady admitted for induction at 32 weeks because the baby had trisomy 18. Even though this was an incredibly sad situation, I had never, and still have never worked with a more compassionate and empathetic doctor who actually sat with the patient throughout her labour, explaining every step to her and her husband. When the baby was delivered, the doctor lovingly swaddled him and took him to his parents to mourn. She wept with them, experiencing their loss and then left them alone for as long as they needed to be with their little boy. Thanks to that amazing doctor, that couple had the most incredible closure by the next morning.
I salute you Amanda!
