It's very easy for fathers to get forgotten when a baby dies.
Many fathers put their feelings on hold and get through by focussing on supporting the mother and planning for the future. Other people often assume that men will be strong and just keep going. Fathers are also generally expected to return to work very soon after the death of their baby and this too may lead some men to ignore their grief and to focus on “getting on with life”. By doing this, however, they may never effectively deal with their own feelings about the loss of this little life. This kind of denial can cause a loss of intimacy in a marriage. Sharing feelings about loss is a necessity between parents.
