I'm really sorry for your loss.
I didn't have a stillbirth but a neonatal death at 3 hours old. It was a blur at the time and the nurses kindly took photos and hand and footprints of my daughter. I wasn't thinking straight at the time and wouldn't have thought of doing this but now, 7 years on I am so glad I have these.
I also had a few hours holding my daughter - if you'd asked me in advance about that I would have said I wouldn't want to do that but the doctor advised me to do it and am so glad I did as at the time it was strangely comforting and is a lasting memory I still have today.

Thanks so much. I think we will defiantly take/get some photos. Do you think it would be OK to just contact the photographer we already had in mind? She has previously worked for heartfelt but no longer does. We are happy to pay for the images.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I also haven't experienced still birth but my son was a premie and passed away at 8 days old. I would definitely make sure you get all keepsakes done such as photos, hand and foot prints, some hospitals also supply memory boxes (ours came from Miracles Babies foundation). At least if you have them done you can choose if/when to look at them.
I would take loose comfortable clothing, maternity pads (some hospitals supply these though), breast pads, lip balm, nipple cream. I would also make sure you ask to be prescribed the tablets to stop your milk coming in. They should be taken in the first couple of days. Otherwise you'll need to contend with milk supply and sore boobs as a cruel reminder of what you have lost.
Again, I'm so so sorry you have to go through this. My heart breaks for you

My friend also had the hand and foot prints turned into a necklace.
It's devastating that so many have had to go through this

I'm sorry for your loss.
There is an organisation called Angel Baby Nappies. They make tiny Nappies for babies born with wings.
They are on Facebook, I'm not sure if they are anywhere else
