Awful Awful day

  • I am so sorry this "little" thing you want is going all wrong.  It does not seem like too much to ask!  I hope it works out.

    Thinking of you,


  • I am so sorry for your loss.



  • I am sorry you are having a bad day. I can't imagine how difficult it is to read that certificate. Maybe you can call the hospital and speak to the person who gave the information for the death certificate or maybe try talking to the doctor that delivered your daughter.  I don't know if that would help, but it might be worth a try.  

    I don't think the "professionals" who are in charge of these things understand how important it is to us mothers to have our babies' lives recognized. They should have to walk in our shoes for a day and maybe then they would understand.


  • Okay, this happened to us with one of our sons, and I can tell you that it broke my heart to know the one piece of paper I had for him was incorrect.  

    Start with your NICU, perhaps with the social workers and ask how you go about having a new cerificate issued with the correct information.  It may take some time, and you might have to pay a small fee for it (though we did not) but it is well worth it.  Her certificate should be perfect.  I'll be thinking of you.


  • I am so sorry that this happened to you.  I would do what Shaonda told you to.  I hope that it gets corrected.
