    Default VICTORIA: Early pregnancy loss commemorative certificate

    Just saw it announced that the Victorian registry of births deaths and marriages will print a commemorative certificate *not a legal document* in recognition of early pregnancy loss/miscarriage.

    There's a few minor criteria to fit but it's pretty general.

    As someone who has had an early miscarriage, just the recognition that it happened is huge! What a great move.

    I'm unsure if there's a cost involved, I assume there would be a small fee.

    This is a great step in the right direction. I know when DS was stillborn he didn’t get a birth certificate just a death certificate. It was pretty sad.

    I'm sorry for your loss

    I agree it's definitely a step in the right direction to lifting the taboo, hopefully starting a dialogue and helping bereaved parents grieve. Just the recognition of the birth is huge. No matter the gestation.
